Dog Days of Summer are Doggone Hot!!

It seems almost too hot to do anything - going to work is almost a 'staycation' if you work indoors as the-powers-that-be realize that a body needs to be cool in order to meet those job goals. But if you are out for the summer, staying cool is a bit more of a challenge as who wants to spend the rest of summer indoors avoiding the heat?

That's why we are so fortunate to live in a county where we have water parks, linear parks and dog parks as well as public libraries just minutes away. Check them all out as we look for cool retreats after a busy day at work or during the day when the kids have tired of indoor pastimes.

(Go to the Blog page to translate this issue. www.lilburncp.com or read it later. Please submit items in Word documents by the 20th of the month.)

Canine flu information for pet owners

Posted on: July 16, 2015

Veterinarians are urging dog owners to take precautions against the canine flu. The University of Georgia's College of Veterinary Medicine offers comprehensive information about the canine flu on its website (see the link below).

Approximately 80 percent of dogs exposed to the virus will get sick, because they have no natural immunity to this strain of the virus, according to College of Veterinary Medicine. Older, younger, and critically ill pets have a higher risk of contracting the virus. The rate of death is very low, 1 to 5 percent.

Construction, Sidewalks, Landscaping and More

Hogan Construction has begun work on the new City Hall/Library site at the corner of Main Street and Church Street. Made possible through the cooperative efforts of the City of Lilburn and Gwinnett County, the two-story City Hall and library building is unique in that it is a joint project under one roof. Construction will last about 14 months. Read more...

A landscaping plan for the roundabouts has been designed and will be installed in the fall. The city will begin sidewalk projects on Main Street and Poplar Street this summer.

City Council recently approved a grant application for $87,000 in state funding to repair Lilburn Industrial Way, which has the worst rated road condition in the city limits. Deep patching and reconstruction of the base will be completed by October 2015, and paving will be completed in 2016.

From SafetySmart Lilburn 

-- Items researched and submitted by  Margot Ashley, President of SafetySmart Lilburn

Be Aware Before You Play

Recently, concerned residents have questioned the practice of children playing in the stream in Lilburn City Park. Because of the inherent potential for bacteria and other foreign objects in the water, these people were concerned that signage should be posted to discourage access to the water.

After consulting with the City, SafetySmart Lilburn can report the following, based on replies from Councilman Tim Dunn and City Manager Bill Johnsa:

The stream is a natural waterway cutting through the City of Lilburn Park. It is a natural hazard with all the risks implied by any stream or body of water in the State.

The stream is not owned by the City and is designated under the jurisdiction of the State of Georgia. The stream was restored by Gwinnett County/State of Georgia to control erosion; it was not intended as a play area or for access by residents. Restoration was not initiated or funded by the City of Lilburn.

The city has no plans to place signage warning against hazardous access to the water, nor does it plan to begin water testing. Stone Mountain charges for admission to their public access beach and is required by the State to have inspections for bacteria and other hazards, as well as provision of lifeguards. It is not the intent of the City of Lilburn to suggest that this is the case with the stream within Lilburn City Park.

Another Scam

At a recent Town Hall meeting, a resident reported that he had been visited by someone purporting to be from the City of Lilburn coming to inspect their septic tank. They found the outlet, the person looked in the tank and offered to "repair the tank" for $700.

PLEASE NOTE: The City of Lilburn has not and does not send out inspectors
for septic systems. This is a scam.

Further note: Anyone soliciting within or outside City Limits must have a solicitor's permit from the police chief. It should be displayed on a lanyard hung around the neck. If someone comes calling trying to sell
products or services and does not display this permit, notify police.
 

Another Safety Tip

If someone rings the doorbell, let them know you are home--but you do not need to open the door. If you are not expecting visitors/service people, let the caller know that you have not requested their visit. You can either talk through an upstairs window or through the door.

National Night Out - Tuesday, Aug. 4

The Lilburn Police Department will celebrate the sixth annual National Night
Out in Lilburn City Park on Aug. 4, 2015, from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

Lilburn’s National Night Out is organized in partnership with non-profit
SafetySmart Lilburn, Inc. The event begins at 6 p.m. and will wrap up with
police canine demonstrations from 8 - 8:30 p.m. Attendees will have the
opportunity to meet staff from local police, fire, and other public safety
agencies, who will share personal and community safety tips. Various types
of cars, trucks, and equipment will be on display. More than 70
participating vendors will bring community resources, knowledge,
information, food, activities, health and vision screening to the public.

Lilburn's 2014 National Night Out was awarded 40th place out of 244 cities
nationwide by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW). The national
awards program honors registered cities, military bases, and various
communities on participation and success of their National Night Out
efforts. Lilburn placed in the top 17 percent of entries in the category for
areas with a population of less than 15,000.

National Night Out, a yearlong community building campaign, is designed to:
(1) heighten crime prevention awareness, (2) generate support for, and
participation in, local anti-crime programs, (3) strengthen neighborhood
spirit and police-community partnerships, and (4) send a message to
criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting
back. On the second Tuesday in August each year, more than 16,000
communities around the U.S. and Canada come together to celebrate this
event.

Lilburn Police Chief Bruce Hedley said, “National Night Out creates a safer
Lilburn by building strong partnerships between the police and the
community. We invite the public to come enjoy the event on Aug. 4.”
