Milton Council honors George Ragsdale.

At its July 15 meeting, Milton’s City Council honored George Ragsdale, a longtime city volunteer who served in numerous leadership positions throughout the city’s history. Ragsdale, a 17-year Milton resident, served as a member of Fulton County’s Rural Preservation Steering Committee, Birmingham Village Steering Committee, Focus Fulton 2025 Comprehensive Plan Committee and Blue Ribbon Commission prior to Milton’s incorporation.

 Leading the charge for the formation of Milton, he served as chairman of Fulton County Commissioner Lynne Riley’s Milton Advisory Committee, then began taking vital leadership roles upon incorporation. Ragsdale served as chairman of both the Planning Commission and Comprehensive Plan Committee and participated in the Crabapple Form Based Code Steering Committee, Highway 9 Form Based Code Steering Committee, Highway 9 LCI Study Committee and Milton Charter Review Commission with integrity and distinction.

 His leadership, dedication and commitment will be missed in Milton.
