Here are the top stories in Roswell today:

  1. The newest Eagle Scouts for the Northern Ridge Boy Scout District were recently announced. Troops in Roswell, Alpharetta, Milton, and John’s Creek are included in this North Fulton district. Six young men from within the district have been promoted to this new rank after finishing their Eagle Board of Review on March 23. Each new Eagle Scout completed a public service project and was sponsored by a local church in the North Fulton area. (Appen Media)
  2. The Roswell Fire Department contended with another nighttime house fire this week. Fire crews were called to the scene after a report of a kitchen fire at a residence on Eagles Crest Village Lane. Fortunately, all occupants of the home were able to escape the home before firefighters arrived. The fire was extinguished; no injuries were reported. The Roswell Fire Department is reminding the public of the dangers of kitchen fires and to pay attention and follow safety measures while cooking. (Instagram)
  3. The entire metro area is talking about Tuesday’s meeting between Mayor Kurt Wilson and Roswell business owners. Despite apologizing for the city’s lack of upfront communication regarding the Canton Street Promenade project, the mayor still received a lot of rebukes from business owners and attendees. One such owner, Ryan Pernice, said that “Canton Street businesses do not support this project, which jeopardizes millions (of dollars) of our investment in the historic district for no apparent reason.” Through open records request made by residents, it was discovered through a series of emails that this plan has been in motion since at least the month of March. Some of those in attendance felt that the trust between the City of Roswell, residents, and proprietors has been broken. Business owners will meet with city officials again this morning. (Newsbreak)
  4. After 27 years with the Roswell Fire Department, Captain and Lieutenant Brian Wolfe has been named as the new deputy chief of administration. The announcement was made on May 8, and Wolfe will officially begin his new role on May 30. His job will now be to manage the budgeting, procurement and logistics of the Fire Marshal’s Office. He will also be involved in the plans and allotment of the funds for public safety bond project. Fire Chief Joe Pennino is excited for the experience and knowledge that Wolfe will bring to the position. (Appen Media)
