Suspension of services and staggered staffing implemented after State of Emergency declaration.

Following Governor Brian Kemp’s Public Health State of Emergency declaration, the City of Lawrenceville has released additional plans for management of City services during the COVID-19 pandemic.  At this time, City facilities will remain open during normal business hours, but the following measures will be implemented immediately:  

  • Lawrenceville Housing Authority offices will be closed the week of March 16 and future operations will be evaluated later in the week. Resident services are still being provided as normal.
  • “Extraordinary Circumstances” have been declared by the City of Lawrenceville for 811 utility locate services. While the City will continue to locate City utilities, it should be expected that utility locates will occur beyond the normal 48-hour window.
  • Suspension of Aurora Theatre public events
  • Suspension of Free Mulch program
  • Suspension of Gas Department “inside” home services. Gas employees will turn off service at the meter until repairs are made inside the home by a qualified person of their choice.
  • Implementation of “Staggered Staffing” plans developed by each City department. The intent is to have teams within each department working alternating days to limit the possibility of community spread across an entire department. The result of implementation of this plan will reduce the City workforce and a reduction of overall service will be seen as employees prioritize work based on safety and essential need. This includes services such as sanitation collection, which will curtail non-essential services like limb collection and appliance collection.

“The City of Lawrenceville continues to be both innovative and flexible during these uncertain times – all in the name of keeping the City operational and preventing illness in our community,” said David Still, Mayor.  “We will monitor the situation daily through the CDC and the Department of Public Health, and update our plan of action and the public accordingly.”

Citizens may visit lawrencevillega.org and follow the City’s Facebook Page for the latest city-related COVID-19 information.  The City of Lawrenceville also encourages citizens to follow the recommendations of the CDC and the Georgia Department of Public Health with regard to COVID-19.
