Collins Praises Corps for Heeding Public Input
WASHINGTON—The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Mobile District has made a decision to allow private floating facilities on Lake Lanier to use security cameras. The USACE repealed the prohibition on cameras after a 30-day comment period during which feedback overwhelming supported the use of cameras. Congressman Doug Collins (R-Ga.) has consistently asked the USACE to seek and consider public comments as it makes decisions regarding northeast Georgia’s lake communities.
“I applaud the Corps’ decision to accept public comment and respond accordingly by allowing Lake Lanier residents to install security cameras on their property. My team and I have tirelessly worked to make our neighbors’ voices heard on the issues that impact them every day. My chief concern is that residents near Lakes Lanier and Hartwell have a platform for communicating their interests to the Corps, and we continue to make progress on this front,” said Collins.
