Mayor Barbara Bender has issued the following statement regarding safety ahead of Saturday's Snellville's Lighted Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting.
Like you, I am praying for the families of the victims of the tragedy at the Waukesha Christmas Parade in Wisconsin. To minimize the chance for any disturbance for our Christmas parade, we are implementing some safety measures. For instance, the parade route will be shorter this year. It will start at Wisteria Village, move to Clower Street, then turn onto Oak Road, and terminate in the parking lot at city hall. In addition, our officers will be out of the cars and more closely observing traffic flow and vehicles. We are looking forward to seeing all of you this weekend. If you have any questions, please contact Butch Sanders at 770-985-3500.
