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.

Toilet Retrofit Rebate Program 
More than 47% of water use in the average American home occurs in the bathroom, with nearly 24% being used by toilets.  Fortunately, your household can significantly curb its toilet water usage in a number of ways. Would you like to decrease your water usage and aid in the conservation of water? Participate in DeKalb County’s Toilet Retrofit Rebate Program! There are two rebate options:


Option 1:  For the purchase of any approved 1.6 gallons per flush (gpf) toilet on the list of eligible toilets, a rebate of up to $50.00 will be given.

Option 2:  For the purchase of any approved 1.28 gpf WaterSense labeled toilet on the list of eligible toilets, a rebate of up to $100.00 will be given.


Only the exact model names and number combinations on DeKalb County's list of eligible toilets will qualify for the toilet rebate. These toilets have been tested by the Maximum Performance Test in specific combinations for performance and water savings - tank and bowl number cannot be "mixed and matched" from different models. Other models may be available for purchase, but WILL NOT qualify for a rebate. Customers will only be allowed to apply for a maximum of three (3) toilets per household.
