    Welcome to the official City of Metter website. Please explore this site to learn about the services and opportunities provided by our city and communicate with us about your needs and hopes for Metter, Georgia.

    Metter, Georgia, founded in 1889, was incorporated in 1903 as a town in western Bulloch County. However, in 1906 Dr. Wallace Kennedy spearheaded a movement to create a new county with Metter as the county seat. The movement became reality in 1914 when Candler County was carved from parts of Bulloch, Emanuel and Tattnall counties and became Georgia’s 150th county. Metter re-incorporated as a city in 1920.

    We firmly believe that “Everything’s Better in Metter,” and we want you to experience the reasons why.

  • 2020 Candler County Census

    This City of Metter encourages our citizens to complete the 2020 Census online. Why is the census so important?

    The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and your community. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data.

    The results of the census also determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives, and they are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts.

    It's also in the Constitution: Article 1, Section 2, mandates that the country conduct a count of its population once every 10 years. The 2020 Census will mark the 24th time that the country has counted its population since 1790.

    Let’s make Candler count! You can do your part by completing the census online from the safety of your home. Take a look at this tutorial video for more details on how to complete your 2020 Census!
