Governor Nathan Deal has declared a state of emergency for 79 Georgia counties including Gwinnett.
“I am issuing this executive order to implement protective measures to ensure the public health, preserve the safety of the public, keep property damage to a minimum and to minimize the social and economic impacts of this event on the citizens of Georgia,” Deal stated. “We will continue monitoring the forecast models and make appropriate adjustments as necessary. Georgians should stay calm, make the appropriate preparations and stay aware of a potential change in weather conditions.”
The City of Sugar Hill is prepared for the storm with two snow plow attachments and two salt spreading attachments. Staff has been trained and is prepared to handle winter weather.
Due to winter weather, all city-related activities will be canceled on Friday evening and Saturday. This includes the Ice Rink @ Sugar Hill, the city’s parks, the Community Center and events scheduled and sponsored by the city.
Sugar Hill officials advise that all residents stay off the roads once the winter weather begins. Please follow the city’s website and social media for updates.
