Today’s Alpharetta Milton top news:
- Are you planning to travel during your vacation? Alpharetta residents can take advantage of the free Vacation Watch program. Once you’ve registered with the police, the police will stop by your home regularly to make sure your doors and windows are in order. They will contact you if there is any problem. (City of Alpharetta)
- Milton residents are hosting an electronic recycling event this Saturday at Bell Memorial Park. Most items are free, except monitors and TV sets. Items containing data, such as mobile phones, are kept safe until wiped or shredded. Registration is required for this event and there is no limit to the number of participants. (City of Milton)
- Alpharetta’s Kimball Road Corridor Improvement project received an award from the Georgia Tree Council. This project was developed to reduce traffic speed and make walking easier and more enjoyable. “The City of Alpharetta should be commended for strengthening and calming this section of the road by adding trees and green space,” said Mary Lynne Beckley, executive director of the Georgia Tree Council. “This redesign will make the sidewalk healthier, safer and more attractive to pedestrians using it. We congratulate them on their good work.” (City of Alpharetta)

From my notes:
- It’s getting colder, so it’s time to turn off the irrigation system. Please note that if overspray from your system causes the road to freeze up, you may be charged for the problem caused. Also, antifreeze is dangerous to pets and humans, so please do not put it in the line. (City of Alpharetta)
