June 1-- City officials in Vidalia are planning to appeal results of the 2010 census.
The city showed a loss of population, however, city manager Bill Torrance believes there may have been an undercount by census takers whom he thinks failed to take into account annexations which have taken place in the city since 2000.
Award of a contract to build the new Vidalia police headquarters and admin complex is getting closer. Officials say 15 contractors, including three local builders, came to a pre-bid conference. Bids will be opened Tuesday, June 7 at 2 p.m. at Vidalia city hall. The project will reconfigure the former Winn-Dixie building located east of city hall.
Vidalia also has some property for sale including a home on Julie Drive and the old fire station on Truman Street.
