Brenan Baird was sworn in as the City of Danielsville’s new police chief during the council’s July 8 business meeting.
Baird was set to assume his duties as police chief July 9. He addressed the council, thanking them for the chance to serve the city and said he plans to build “an exemplary police department” for Danielsville.
Mayor Todd Higdon reported July 8 that a number of new businesses are moving into Danielsville over the next few months.
Among those businesses are Normaltown Café, which will move into the strip mall, along with a retail business. Another free-standing retailer will construct a store next to Williams Used Cars; Oconee Lenders has moved in next door to Paparonni’s Pizza and the Tanner House is re-opening as a retail/yard sale shop. A seafood restaurant named Walt’s Place is moving into the old Country Confections building next to Farm Bureau on the north side of town and grading is being done for a large farmers’ market behind the restaurant. Also, a new dance studio called “All the Right Moves” will be located on Sams Groves Street in the Summers Place building.
Three new homes are also under construction.
“Danielsville is growing,” Higdon said, noting that Danielsville will experience more growth in the next six months than the entire county.
