From the Mayor

Welcome to the City of Swainsboro!

On behalf of the City Council and all city employees, it is my pleasure to extend to you the hospitality of the finest community in Georgia. Whether you are planning a visit, planning to open a business, or just planning your weekend, I am confident that you will find this site to be a great introduction to all the opportunities available in Swainsboro. 

I hope this website will serve as a practical tool in acquainting you with our City. But beyond just the facts and figures of everyday life, I hope that you will also learn something of the soul and spirit of this town. As you might expect, we are proud of Swainsboro and what is being accomplished here. 

I invite you to discover the surprises our community holds. From our outstanding educational triad of public schools, Swainsboro Technical School, and East Georgia College, to the very first rural Technology Park in Georgia (Pathway), to the outstanding recreational venues of George L. Smith Park and Flat Creek Lodge, to the arts in Downtown Swainsboro you will find a unique and varied experience in this busy but charming community.

Thank you again for taking the time to explore our City’s website. We hope you discover why Swainsboro is the place we proudly call home!


Charles Schwabe

Mayor, City of Swainsboro
