Over the next two weeks, Barnesville Cable TV customers may experience some outages due to sun spots.  This is caused by the angle at which the sun hits our dishes receiving the cable signals.  Outages may last for as long as 20 minutes.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

The Barnesville Ice Skating Rink is now closed for the season.  We hope that everyone enjoyed a fun winter of ice skating!

Due to the extremely warm weather, the Barnesville ice skating rink has been closed indefinitely.  Watch for future postings if the rink does reopen at a later date.

Attention Barnesville Cable TV Subscribers:  Although the letter which was sent last week indicated that customers using the SD cable box should experience no problems after the equipment changeover, we are finding that SOME customers with these boxes are unable to receive channels 54 and higher.  If you are experiencing this or any other problems, please contact City Hall at 354-2292 on Monday morning after 7:30 am and we will schedule a service call.  We apologize that technicians will not be available over the weekend.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience and we continue to work hard to provide affordable and quality service.
