LILBURN -- The Lilburn City Council took care of several housekeeping chores Monday night, including the abandonment of two streets in the Church Street Station subdivision in order to secure the right of way for the construction of the new city hall/library site complex.
The project, a joint venture between the city and Gwinnett County, will house the City Hall on the upper floors and the library on the first floor.
In other business, the Council:
... Revised its Merit System Act and personnel policies to reflect procedures under the Mayor-City Manager form of government.
... Agreed to sell the house at 649 Springwood Drive previously rented by one of the city police officers. Since no other officer wanted to rent it, it was agreed to try and sell the house for $70,000. Since the property was first rented three years ago, $35,000 has been collected.
... Approved the application of Joes to Goes Restaurant, 605 Indian Trail Road, to sell beer, wine and distilled spirits with Sunday sales for consumption on site.
... Accepted a donation of $500 from the Girl Scout Council of Northeast Georgia, thanking the Council for use of the City Park for Lilburn Day Camp.
Mayor Johnny Crist listed the following events occurring in Lilburn in the next few weeks: Saturday, Community Garage Sale; Sept. 22, Endless Summer Surf Music Fest & Family Fun Day; Sept. 24, Town Hall Meeting to discuss upcoming projects such as Big League Dreams sports complex; and Oct. 13, Lilburn Daze.
