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

State and national awards have been bestowed upon several city departments; the Gainesville Parks and Recreation Agency, Fire and Police, Finance, and Public Utilities.

Our designation as a City of Excellence in January 2000 and a Georgia Trendsetter City in January 2006 is a constant reminder of our commitment to service and to the people of Gainesville who make us what we are.
