Welcome

 

Thank you for visiting my website which I hope will be a good source for information about District 6.  Please visit it often as the News and Calendar change frequently.

 

I am always looking for ways to stay in touch.  Your neighborhood and community meetings are important to me as they give me a chance to hear directly from you about concerns and ideas.  If you do not belong to an association, I can arrange to meet with your friends and neighbors for conversation in your home.  Please get in touch with me about upcoming activities so that I can attend. You can reach me at 404-371-4909, through my website, www.kathiegannon.com or email at kgannon@dekalbcountyga.gov.

District 6 Updates and Events

Water Conservation Information and Tips

The state of Georgia is currently in a drought and every drop counts! DeKalb County is classified under Level 2 Drought category. Utilize the following tips to aid in the conservation of water:

  • Use a rain gauge to determine how much it has rained over the week before watering outdoor plants. Most outdoor plants need an inch of water per week.
  • Water in several short sessions instead of one long session. This reduces runoff and allows water to infiltrate into soil and plant roots.
  • Only water lawns when needed. If the blades of grass don’t bounce back after walking across the lawn, it is time to water. Water lawns and plants in the early morning and late evening. Consider using a rain barrel to collect water.
  • Check and repair leaks inside and outside the home.
  • Shorten showers and turn off water when shaving or brushing teeth.
  • Fill dishwashers and washing machines. Make sure there is a full load every time.
NOTE : By executive order on November 14th, Govenor Deal banned the sale and usage of fireworks for the duration of the drought.
