SNELLVILLE – In a true example of governments cooperating for the good of the people, Gwinnett County road crews were on Skyland Drive cleaning debris from the roadway Friday.
The cleanup effort was the result of Mayor Pro Tem Dave Emanuel reaching out to Snellville Public Works Director Gaye Johnson to see what could be done about keeping the roadway near South Gwinnett High School litter free. Because Skyland is a county-maintained road, Johnson called Gwinnett County, which promptly responded, sending the road crew.
“It is great to see Gwinnett County respond to Snellville’s request when called upon,” Emanuel said. “This is a true example of two entities working together to better serve our residents. We greatly appreciate their help. This is how government is supposed to work.”
Emanuel recently began a cleanup effort called Snellville Clean and Proud, modeled after the popular Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful program. The city has adopted a one-mile stretch of Oak Road. Citizens and city officials join together to clean that portion of the road. A cleanup day is being scheduled for July.
