by Sarah Fay Campbell

All Coweta County offices were closing at 1 p.m. Tuesday because of winter weather.

Newnan City Hall was closed as of 12:45 p.m., according to city officials.

The Newnan City Council meeting scheduled for Tuesday night was still set to be held, as of 1 p.m. said City of Newnan Public Information Officer Gina Snider.

Coweta County State Court arraignment, originally scheduled for Wednesday, has been postponed until Friday at 9 a.m. Whether or not community service workers will be required to report on Wednesday will depend on whether county offices are open or closed.

“We will continue to monitor the situation concerning office status for Wednesday… and issue an update as soon as possible,” said Coweta Communications Director Tom Corker, regarding county office operations. “Check Coweta County’s Facebook page, Twitter feed and www.coweta.ga.us for further updates,” Corker said. Essential Coweta County personnel should check in with their department heads for any updates, Corker said.
