Bellwood Community

There could soon be a new city in the Wiregrass.

Bellwood Community residents are looking at the possibility of incorporating. Several dozen people discussed the pros and cons of becoming a city.

Meeting organizers believe Bellwood would get more paved streets and better governmental services by becoming a city.

Many residents voiced concern that it would take a great deal of money to incorporate and with just two businesses, there's not enough revenue to create a new town in Geneva County.

Supporters of “Bellwood Incorporated” plan to circulate a petition to get the issue on the ballot in a special election.
