Loganville honors American Legion leader's 36 years of service

LOGANVILLE -- Mayor Ray Nunley and City Council members publicly honored Bobby Boss on Thursday evening, thanking him for commanding the local American Legion for 36 years.

Boss' wife Evelyn was also recognized for her patience and support of the Legion's efforts and the demands on her husband's time and energy.

The couple has been married for nearly 60 years, since 1953.

Loganville presented Boss with a "Bobby Boss Road" sign during the meeting Thursday, and Mill Street on both sides of U.S. Highway 78 will be renamed in the Legion leader's honor.

Alcohol ordinance gets final approval

Loganville's alcohol ordinance breezed through a second reading and was adopted Thursday, with the only change since this month's work session being a specific definition of "county line."

For the purposes of the ordinance, "county line" refers to the line between Gwinnett and the city of Loganville. The distinction is important, as no property within 250 feet either side of the county line can file an application to serve or sell alcohol.

One-way street approved

A one-way traffic pattern around the city's approved Town Green was approved by council members on Thursday, with Pecan Street, Covington Street, Main Street and Broad Street affected. There will be no parking along Pecan Street, and there will be sidewalks along Broad Street.

Concrete pouring for curbs around the Town Green will begin Monday.
