LDN to become legal organ of Troup County in January

Published 3:00 am Saturday, December 18, 2021

The LaGrange Daily News will become the legal organ of Troup County effective Jan. 1, 2022, becoming the place public notices will be published.

Public notices include foreclosures, divorces, election notices, local government announcements, name changes, public hearings, public auctions and more.

The decision was reached on Oct. 15 by Sheriff James Woodruff, Clerk of Court Jackie Taylor and Probate Judge Debbie Wade  — the three constitutional officers as required by law — to change the county’s legal organ, which was formerly the Troup County News.

Official notice was emailed by Wade on Nov. 15 announcing the change to county officials.  The TCN has also published the first two of four required announcements in its newspaper, notifying the public of the change.

“We thank the constitutional officers for their decision and for their trust that The LaGrange Daily News will handle these important notices correctly,” said LaGrange Daily News Publisher Daniel Evans. “Accurate and timely publication of legal notices allows public and private entities to conduct and complete their business transactions according to the laws that pertain to such activity, thus we pledge to make sure the process of publishing these important notices is handled professionally, accurately, and timely.”

Public notices can be sent to the LDN using email address public.notices@lagrangenews.com. To place a legal ad or for questions, call (706) 443-7535.
