Welcome to the City of Sylvester website.

For our citizens, we hope you find our access to information and services convenient and easy to navigate.  You can easily view our council meeting agendas within this website, as well as request city services or find a city staff member to answer your questions through our online directory.

If you are visiting our site for the first time, we hope your exploration is just the first step of planning a trip to our community.

Sylvester is a small community of 6,000 plus people. We enjoy small town living with a downtown of restaurants, retail and services.  You will find us welcoming and eager to make your experience in Sylvester memorable.

 I am proud to say we are a full service city in that we provide electricity, gas, water and sewer to our citizens.  These revenues stay in our community to support other local projects that improve the quality of life in our city. With our competitive utility rates, we also work closely with the local economic development organizations to attract new business to our region and our downtown.

If I can ever be assistance to you, please call City Hall.   

Best Regards,

Bill Yearta

Mayor, Sylvester
