SNELLVILLE – A piece of steel from the World Trade Center will be permanently displayed at City Hall and serve as a memorial to those who perished on Sept. 11, 2001.
The monument will be dedicated during a ceremony at 6 p.m. Monday on the front lawn of City Hall, 2342 Oak Road. The public is encouraged to attend.
The monument was created by Eagle Scout Keval Parag Amin of Troop 506 with the help of volunteers.
“I will lead the building of a 9/11 Memorial for the City of Snellville to pay tribute to the victims of the 9/11 attacks on the country,” Amin, who was born nearly two years after the attacks, wrote in his project description.
The monument is made up of actual aluminum and steel from the World Trade Center, acquired from the Port of Authority of New York/New Jersey.
Amin and Mayor Tom Witts are expected to speak at the ceremony.
The steel is affixed to a pole embedded in a concrete base surrounded by foliage and a mulch bed with a walkway leading to the structure coming off the existing walkway.
