Sandy Springs accepts gifts of land, truck

The Sandy Springs City Council has accepted three donations to the city – easements for capital projects, and a new Ford F150 truck for the police department’s Citizens on Patrol unit.

Howard M. and Cynthia C. Fleming donated a 1,038-square-foot, temporary construction easement at 660 Mabry Road for the Mabry Road Drainage Improvements Project. The city will pay the couple $13,418 to replace landscaping and other improvements lost to the project.

Separately, the city accepted a 795-square-foot right-of-way and 1,913 square feet of temporary construction easement at 5512 Glenridge Drive from the Stonecrest Estates Homeowners Association for the Glenridge Drive Sidewalk Project. Staff estimated the fair market value of the donation as $32,000.

Finally, Sandy Springs-based Cox Enterprises donated a 2017 Ford truck, with a retail value of $38,000, to be used for crime prevention, traffic control and other purposes by Citizens on Patrol. Cox media holdings include The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
