Alpharetta is embarking on a citywide upgrade to its traffic signal system that it hopes will improve response times for fire emergencies
The Alpharetta City Council has approved spending up to $300,000 on an updated system that automatically turns traffic lights green for an approaching fire apparatus with its emergency lights activated.
“There’s a lot of great things happening in Alpharetta,” Merkel said. “I’m proud to have worked with a very proactive city council, exceptional city staff, and, most importantly, our residents during these past four years. It is essential we continue to move Alpharetta forward in a way our citizens can be proud of.”
The sculpture, by artist Mike Wasol, has been on temporary loan to the city as part of the Miscellany outdoor sculpture program. The work is interactive, “allowing the viewer to step inside the sculpture to see a nighttime sky filled with stars,” according to a staff report.
he current Pavement Condition Index scores for Alpharetta roadways stands at 68.6 on a scale of 1-100. That’s better than average, Sewczwicz said, but it’s below the city’s stated goal of a 75 rating.
Two sitting members of the Alpharetta City Council have announced their bid for re-election this fall.
Commuters choose their driver or rider based on a user’s personal profile and can filter for gender, co-worker or classmate, proximity to the preferred route and other factors, according to an announcement of the service.
It can be impolite to talk about age, but the Alpharetta Fire Department has invited folks to celebrate its 75th birthday today.
Mayor Jim Gilvin recommended that the city explore a new name for the park, as a new mixed-use development also named Windward Park is under construction at Windward and Northpoint parkways.
Gilvin is running again so soon because he is finishing out the term of David Belle Isle, who resigned for an unsuccessful bid in the Georgia Secretary of State Republican primary.
