County Receives Two Donations

County Receives Two Donations

LAWRENCEVILLE – Commissioners today accepted donations from two organizations, one that will help with transportation needs for seniors and persons with disabilities and another that brings an interactive learning exhibit to Gwinnett County.

The Friends of Gwinnett Senior Services donated $39,371 to be used for the Transportation Voucher Program in Gwinnett. Recently, federal funds were granted from the New Freedom Act to support a limited number of seniors and persons with disabilities with vouchers to support the cost of transportation for essential trips with priority given to medical appointments and medical procedures.

Public transportation, including paratransit, is limited to certain corridors in the county and cannot meet the transportation needs for all those who need special transportation.

Gwinnett County Officials give a County Update

Gwinnett County, GA--  (submitted by Gwinnett County Government)

This has been one of the more significant snow and ice events Gwinnett has experienced in many years in terms of volume of snow and ice on the roads in combination with below-freezing temperatures. Despite the colder temperatures expected over the next few days, the sun, low humidity, and wind are expected to help accelerate the natural evaporation and melting process.

The Gwinnett County Department of Transportation has been responding to weather-related road conditions since the winter storm hit metropolitan Atlanta on Sunday evening. The department has been primarily cooperating with and assisting the County's emergency personnel and crews, which have responded to icy conditions on major thoroughfares and collector streets.
