Burglary Arrest, ‘Glaring Deficit’ and Varsity News

A look at a few of the most notable stories this week on Dacula Patch.

Arrest Made in Burglary Cases Involving Green SUV

If you have been following the crime reports in Dacula Patch this past week, you know there was a series of burglaries involving suspects in a green sport utility vehicle. One of the suspects was arrested last week after an alert officer spotted a vehicle that was the subject of a departmental BOLO (Be on the lookout). This is another example of great work by the Gwinnett County Police Department. Hopefully, more arrests will be forthcoming.

Varsity Restaurant to Be Built a Short Drive From Dacula

It won’t be in Dacula, but judging from the reaction on the Dacula Patch Facebook page, it will be close enough. I actually think it is wonderful that Varsity fans will soon be able to make the short drive to Bethlehem as opposed to heading to Norcross or downtown for their Varsity fix. 

‘Glaring Deficit’ in Sanitation Revenue Collection

City leaders are at work on the 2013 fiscal year budget and wrapping up the 2012 budget year. Based on current projections, the city will end the year on good financial footing but is facing an issue with sanitation revenue collection. If you reside within the city limits of Dacula, now is the time to speak up if you wish to have a say in the budget process.

Voting Begins at Dacula Park Activity Building on Oct. 27

If you want to vote early and don’t want to go to the main elections office in Lawrenceville, you are in luck. Advance voting will be held at the Dacula Park Activity Building next week. If you are a city resident, don’t forget to stop by City Hall to vote in the package store referendum as well.

New Health Inspection Scores Range From 80 to 91

Every once in a while, I get an email from a disgruntled restaurant owner who is displeased to see the health inspection score for his or her dining establishment published (even though they are a matter of public record and required to be posted in the restaurant). Far more often though, I get emails or messages from readers who are happy to see the scores reported. Personally, if I am going to spend my hard-earned money eating out, I want to spend it at a place that I know is conscientiously complying with health regulations. Look for the restaurant inspection scores each Wednesday morning.
