The City of Barnesville is rolling out its ‘Barnesville Bucks’ campaign to give the local economy a needed shot in the arm following the COVID pandemic. The promotion is backed by American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds.
The city was awarded $2.1 million in ARPA funds of which half has been received. The promotion is open only to Lamar County residents who have received the COVID vaccine.
Those interested can enter by visiting either the civic center or E.P. Roberts Center. A vaccination card and valid driver’s license are required.
There will be two drawings each week through the end of the year. Winners will receive $100 in Barnesville Bucks to spend at participating local businesses. Those businesses will have signs indicating the vouchers are accepted.
The city will reimburse the businesses the full value of purchases made by the winners.
