SUGAR HILL — The Sugar Hill City Council on Monday unveiled a new city logo to be used on all promotional materials for the next 15 months to celebrate Sugar Hill’s 75th anniversay.

Council members congratulated Angela Veugeler of the Veugeler Design Group of Buford for the winning entry. It was among 65 entries that a panel of judges culled down to six finalists that were placed on the city’s website. The winning entry was chosen after more than 600 public responses.

The council was also told about an essay contest underway for grades K-12 in the local schools. Youngsters are writing essays about what life is like for a child in Sugar Hill in the year 2014 and what it will be like to grow up in Sugar Hill 75 years from now in the year 2089. The five essay finalists will be chosen next month and put in a time capsule placed in the rotunda of the new City Hall next March to be opened in 2089.

In other business, Brandon Hembree was welcomed as a new member of the council. He replaces Mayor-elect Steve Edwards who stepped down to run for office and will assume the post in January. Hembree qualified for the position and was unopposed. He will serve until 2015.

The council was also told that plans are underway for the city’s Fall Festival on Saturday from 11 a.m until 5 p.m. It will take place on West Broad Street in front of the new City Hall.
