📢 I’m looking for business owners and marketers in Roswell who want to build awareness, connect with customers and increase sales.

I have a limited number of sponsorships available to introduce our readers to local businesses they need to know. If that’s you, then I invite you to learn more and secure your spot now.

Here are the top stories in Roswell today:

  1. National Vietnam War Veterans Day was celebrated throughout the nation on March 29, and two cities in North Fulton were highlighted for their special observances. John’s Creek held their celebration in Newtown Park at the “Wall That Heals” memorial. The Johns Creek Veterans Association and the Atlanta Vietnam Veterans Business Association sponsored the event. Roswell’s tribute held their observance hat City Hall’s Faces of War Memorial. The Roswell High School Jazz Ensemble opened the event with a performance of the National Anthem and Boy Scout Oakley Barker orated the Pledge of Allegiance. “Service for our country means they deserve nothing but the best support possible, from access to medical care and disability benefits to opportunities for education and employment,” Mayor Wilson expressed. A wreath was laid at the memorial and a moment of silence and reflection followed. A student from Roswell High School, Harris Newbold, ended the ceremony performance of “Taps.” (appenmedia.com)
  2. A change to the pricing and payment terms between the city and CentralSquare Technologies has been recommended by the Roswell Public Safety and Public Works Committee. These pricing and payment terms are associated with penalties for false alarms. The change will require CentralSquare to assume all system and processing costs needed to provide the service. CentralSquare is said to collect 30% of the fees generated from false alarms and the City of Roswell will receive 70%. Penalties received from negative balances or insufficient funds will be the responsibility of the city. ( Paywall: The Atlanta Journal Constitution)
  3. A woman in Roswell was the one arrested after she called police to report an assault by a man at the La Quinta Inn and Suites on Holcomb Bridge Rd. She told officers that a man came into her room and proceeded to strangle her; she lost consciousness. She reported that she was dragged, hit with a lamp, and her fingers were bitten. She had bruises, a knot on her forehead, and lacerations that were visible. The accused man was soon found by police who gave a different account of the incident. His wounds and witnesses corroborated his account. Roswell Police learned that the woman had a warrant from Cobb County for aggravated assault. She was arrested and transported her to North Fulton Hospital for treatment. (appenmedia.com)
