GAINESVILLE - There's been another delay in reopening a section of Crescent Drive on the east side of Gainesville.<br />
The road has been closed from White Sulphur Road to just north of the Hall County Emergency Services Complex for several months and city of Gainesville officials said a month ago they hoped to have it open by Aug. 5.<br />
However, they said Thursday it looks like it will be Aug. 15 before the sewer line work in that area is finished and the road reopens.
Northeast Georgia Medical Center Braselton President Anthony Williamson said he would speak loudly in order to compete with the noise of construction crews outside the windows behind him. That sort of challenge expresses in a nutshell the story of the new hospital’s burgeoning inaugural year.
The Hall County School District will have to dip into the general fund in order to make sure all employees get a pay raise in the new fiscal year, but school board members think that's the right thing to do.
