Back in the late ’60s and early ’70s Snellville was the up and coming new community. “Everybody is somebody in Snellville” was the positive motto of the citizens. Finally outsiders realized that the proper name was not “Snailville.”
Many new subdivisions sprang up and Snellville became a great place to raise a family. Good schools, churches, and shopping centers springing up and made Snellville a popular destination for many new families. A small town atmosphere with modern conveniences. Pastures were still lining Highway 78, called Memorial Drive, to Stone Mountain, and the Scenic Hwy, Highway 124, to Lawrenceville. The city and county government was well respected and operated in the best interest of the citizens.
Now it seems that the city of Snellville leaders are in constant conflict among themselves. I hope that the mayor and city council will cease their petty rivalries and start doing the job they were elected to do for the citizens. We have enough fussing and feuding in Wahington D.C. and not much gets accomplished up there either.
I hope the current interest in the TV show filming in Snellville overrides the comedy of the city officials.
