Macon-Bibb leaders and public safety officials broke ground for a new fire station and sheriff's precinct Wednesday morning. The new Macon-Bibb Fire Station will replace the Breezy Hill no. 3 station and Bibb County Sheriff's Office precinct will replace the one on Pio Nono.
Residents at the Green Meadows Townhouses in Macon are tired of the violence. "There's too much nonsense going on," said a Green Meadows resident, who did not want to be named. "They do anything that they want to do and terrorize the neighborhood and it's not cool for the children, it's really not."
The Bibb County deputy who shot and killed a man who attacked him last October has been cleared of charges. Witnesses say Deputy Greg Ussery confronted 55-year-old Larry Matthews after he stole from the Family Dollar on Eisenhower Parkway.
