Kat, how cold.
Actually, it's Autonomatronics, Disney's interactive version of Audio-Animatronics.
Why is our city wasting money on a lawsuit against Anderson? They may not like his comments but that doesn't mean they can waste our money to shut him up.
I live in Snellville and we will now pay for Balfour's actions. Gwinnett GOP needs to get someone strong to represent Snellville.
The director's response to a million dollar budget cut is to raise hours? Brilliant.
CP3, perhaps you are the one requiring a civics refresher.
The Mayor Pro Tempore either acts as the mayor (in the absence of the formal position) or acts as the mayor in said officials absence. Hmmm, that sounds to me like he is the legal acting mayor.
Society seems unwilling to accept the fact that accidents happen. This was a horrible accident. A life was claimed. But it was an accident, and this young lady will never forget it.
Remember when Laura Bush (then Laura Welch) ran a stop sign that resulted in a fatal car accident that killed her friend in another car? She was never charged. It was an accident.
Karl, did YOU read it? Here's the quote, "Mayor Pro Tem Dan Foster, a manager of enterprise data solutions with Verizon Wireless in Alpharetta, recused himself from the discussion." The deal will result in revenue.
That's not difficult to understand.
Chairperson Nash seems to have a vendetta against the county public library. Cutbacks and requirements for efficiencies are one thing, but the county, under Nash's leadership, has now cut the library's budget by over 20% and she now wants to cut the book budget by 33%. This makes no sense when our state's HS graduation rate is a lowly 66% and the county is working so hard to bring in high-tech businesses -- businesses who hire well-educated employees who want their families to live in a county that recognizes the importance of schools, libraries, and high quality services. Under Nash's leadership the library has gone from being open 73 hours a week to under 43. This is not a viable, long-term option if this county wants to bring new, tax-paying businesses to the area.
Please, BOC, reconsider this 33% cut in the library's materials budget. The library needs to be open past 3PM, it needs to be available to kids, adults, and all citizens of Gwinnett.
So the new mayor of Suwanee, an executive of Verizon and the same person who JUST gave a speech at the Chamber's Tech Breakfast in November on the subject of wireless and mini cell towers, has recused himself from this vote? Are the voters stupid? Are we supposed to believe that the mayor's connections with Verizon are not, in some fashion, playing a role in the city's decision to buy mini cell towers?
This is far too similar to a Gwinnett County land purchase. I hope the city of Suwanee sees how badly this looks and reconsiders.
