"The city government is prepared to help our residents weather this storm. We encourage all residents and businesses to take steps to prepare, as well," City Manager Bill Johnsa said.
On Monday at 8:30 a.m., the first-floor of Lilburn City Hall-Library, located at 340 Main St., will be converted to an emergency shelter and will remain open until it is no longer needed on Tuesday. City Hall will not be open for regular business on Monday.
The Lilburn City Council meeting scheduled for Monday has been postponed until a later date to be determined. Advanced Disposal has announced that sanitation collection services will be delayed by one day this week for residents inside the city limits.
