LAWRENCEVILLE (GWINNETT/METRO ATLANTA) GA – March 7, 2017


The City of Lawrenceville has appointed members to serve on the community’s newly formed Financial Review Citizens Committee.  Members named to the community at last night’s Council meeting included Michael Bolitz, Carla Crowe, Susan Sikes Davis, John Greenway, Liz Hartnett, Ryan Jensen, Glenn Martin, Jason Powell, Andres Rubio, Linda Stephens, Michael Thomas, Ann Vines, Jeff Wages, Sandra Webb and Carolyn Wright. The purpose of this committee is to educate citizens, business owners, and community leaders on the financial operations of the City and ultimately to encourage input into budgetary process in order to create better transparency with the public.


Chuck Warbington, City Manager, shared, “Lawrenceville has an operating budget of over $170 Million – the second largest municipal budget in Metro Atlanta, second only to Atlanta. A budget that large makes it not only needful but imperative to maintain transparency and communication with our residents and businesses as we work collaboratively with them to ensure proper investment and a focus on strategic priorities as set by the Lawrenceville community.”


The Committee comprises 15 members — five residents, five business representatives and five community leaders. Committee Members will meet four times in the next two months and may be called upon to attend work sessions as follows:
