SANDY SPRINGS LIBRARY REOPENS AFTER RENOVATIONS
Following extensive improvements that closed the library last August, the Sandy Springs Library is reopening in July. The interior work included new finishes, updated restrooms and lighting, the addition of a children’s and storytime room, and a technology zone and computer lab. Prior to the renovations inside, exterior upgrades were made that included roof and brick repairs, pressure washing, new paint, tree removal and improved fencing. The enhancements are part of the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System’s Library Building Program, which will bring improvements to 23 library branches as well as its downtown headquarters. The program is expected to wrap up in late 2020.

BROOKHAVEN WELCOMES PIGS AS PETS
Fancy a porcine pet? During a recent regular session, the Brookhaven City Council approved an ordinance amendment that permits residents to keep potbelly pigs as household pets. The amendment comes with several restrictions, including a weight limit of 200 pounds, a minimum fence height of 4 feet and a minimum enclosure size of 250 feet per lot. In addition, only residents living in lots zoned as single-dwelling detached residential are permitted to own pigs, which must be vaccinated and spayed/ neutered. Buckhead also permits potbelly pigs as pets.
