Warner Robins Police propose fine for 'false alarms'


If you have a security alarm in your Warner Robins home or business, now might be a good time to make sure it's working properly.

Otherwise, it could cost you a fine.

The Warner Robins Police Department suggested an ordinance at the city council meeting Monday night that could reduce the number of false alarms they have to respond to.

With over six thousand false alarms documented last year Warner Robins police says it is costing them lots of time they could be on patrols.

One business they cited as an example had 67 false alarms last year because of their broken security system.

On the residential side, 29 was the highest number of calls. In that case, the motion sensor was set too low, where a pet kept setting it off.

Warner Robins approves budget for fiscal year


No new taxes and a raise for city employees were made official after the Warner Robins budget was approved Monday night.

The $38 million general fund budget includes public safety, public works, recreation, and development.

There will also be a two percent raise for full-time city employees.

The formerly proposed increase in sanitation fees was removed from the budget this year.

Mayor Randy Toms says, overall, they are in good shape financially, especially because of a surplus from last year.

"We didn't go up on taxes," he explains. "No millage rate increase or anything, so that's good. The City of Warner Robins is financially sound, and that's demonstrated in the budget."

Houston County's population could exceed Bibb's


Houston County's population is expected to surpass Bibb by this time next year.

That's according to current census numbers.

From July 2010 to last year, Houston County's population jumped six percent.

Bibb, on the other hand, actually dropped one percent.

Now, Houston County has a total of about 150,000 people.

The Williams are one family who are used to moving.

"This will be our 17th address," says Paulette Williams, unloading the suitcases from their car.

But now, they have a permanent place to call home.

"We just fell in love with the people, the neighborhood, and the community," she says.

Williams and her family moved to Warner Robins in 2004 when her husband was stationed at Robins Air Force Base.
