20-year veteran of Norcross Police Department recognized for service

NORCROSS - Lt. Stephen Kellogg was recognized Monday night for 20 years of service to the Norcross Police Department.

Kellogg, who served in Cobb County before coming to Norcross in 1987, is the department's morning watch lieutenant.

"I've seen a lot of changes over the years here. Hopefully I'll have another five years before they make me hang it up," Kellogg said.

Public hearings to be held again Monday

For lack of a quorum Monday night, council members could not vote on any items that were heard during Monday night's council meeting. Hospitalization, illness and travel kept three councilmen away from the meeting, leaving only Mayor Lillian Webb and Councilmen Keith Shewbert and David McLeroy to preside over Monday's meeting.

Among the items to be discussed again Monday are four rezonings (2585 Beaver Ruin Road, 510 W. Peachtree St., 5965 Peachtree Corners E. and property at the corner of Lively Avenue and Fairmont Drive).

Election qualifying begins

Qualifying for the Norcross general election will be from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Aug. 27-31. The 2007 election ballot will have two referendum questions: One concerns re-development powers, and the other concerns a change of term for elected officials from two-year to three-year terms.
