HGNNC is proud to report that our District 6 Representative Jackie Jackson got together with her stakeholders to tackle one of their most chronic areas for illegal dumping. They worked together, cleaned up and used the MYLA311 app to arrange for the bulky items to be picked up. Jackie Jackson is our District Representative of the month. GREAT JOB!
Betty Hawkins passed away on September 8, 2020 and at our Board Meeting on that same day, we held a moment of silence to honor her and her service to our community. She had served on our Board since we were certified in 2002 and had been involved with the Neighborhood Watch for many, many years. She made so many 311 calls that many of the operators knew her by name. She always said she wanted to go out “with her boots on” and so she did.
Rest in peace Betty!
