Meet Wes Hyder! Wes is the longtime owner of Hometown Comfort Heating and Air in South Hall. He says his favorite part of living in Hall County is the positive growth in South Hall.
“I live in South Hall and seeing that they are looking well into the future on growth plans and infrastructure to support it. I grew up in Gwinnett County and I believe it grew too fast and could not keep up with infrastructure to support that growth,” he said.
We want to thank Wes for participating in the Faces of Hall County!
