Weinel hired as Braselton Capital Projects Coordinator

By Rebecca Hubbard Reporter/Anchor

Braselton city officials hire a Pendergrass woman to be the city’s Capital Projects Coordinator.

City Manager Jennifer Scott says the town council funded the new position this year in order to have a leader to help with, “…GA 211 widening, development of a large municipal recreation park, ongoing construction in our downtown, just to name a few.”

A press release from the city says Sandy Weinel brings almost two decades of experience to the job with certifications as a professional engineer, floodplain manager, and from the Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission.
