Gwinnett cities draw up response to county's service offer

Representatives from the Gwinnett Municipal Association will meet again this week with county officials to attempt to settle a long-running dispute over services.

The GwMA met Wednesday night to consider the county's latest proposal. Representatives came out with a response they intend to present to the county by Friday.

At issue is a state-mandated agreement detailing which services the county provides to cities. Some cities have argued their residents should not pay the county for some services already provided within the cities. Both the county and its 15 cities remain ineligible for state grants and permits as long as they are without a service delivery agreement.
