Loganville city attorney retires; replacement welcomed

LOGANVILLE — The city’s longtime attorney Robyn Webb announced Thursday that she will be retiring in order to stay home with her children and be a full-time mom.

Webb thanked Mayor Ray Nunley, City Manager Bill Jones and every council member with whom she has worked over the years.

“I have told so many people that the the city of Loganville are professionals,” Webb said, adding that she has never seen Jones make a decision that was not in the best interest of the city.

Webb then introduced the city’s new attorney, Karen Woodward, with the law firm of Cruser and Mitchell. Before joining that firm, Woodward was a senior assistant city attorney with the City of Atlanta Law Department. There, she was lead counsel to the Atlanta Police Department and before that, to the Atlanta Water Department and the Department of Corrections.

“I’ve been doing this for 25 years. I know that I have giant shoes to fill,” Woodward said.

Waste Pro contract renewed

Council members voted Thursday to extend the city’s contract with Waste Pro, Loganville’s waste collection provider, through Sept. 31, 2015. Under the terms of the contract, there will be no increase in prices in 2011. However, fuel surcharges and price adjustments based on the Consumer Price Index are possible in 2012.
