Government Services

Cities were created to provide services. Almost two centuries after incorporation, the City of Gainesville continues to offer water and sewer services, police and fire protection, back-door garbage pick-up, parks and recreation opportunities, and an employee base of more than 650 to serve citizens.

City of Excellence

The City of Gainesville was designated as a City of Excellence in January 2000 and a Georgia Trendsetter City in January 2006 - both constant reminders of our commitment to service and to the people of Gainesville who make us what we are.
