Sawnee Electric awards bike grant for Johns Creek police

The Johns Creek Public Safety Foundation has received a $7,800 grant to buy three new, fully equipped, police bicycles and car racks to help patrol the planned Cauley Creek/Quail Hollow Park, the city announced.

The Sawnee Electric Membership Foundation awarded the funds, made possible by customers “rounding up” their electric bills to the next highest dollar.

“This ‘extra change’ goes directly into the foundation and is then gifted back into the communities we serve,” said Blake House, vice president of member services at Sawnee Electric Membership Corp., Cumming.

With Cauley Creek/Quail Hollow Park to encompass more than 190 acres, “the city identified police bicycles as an important need for the Police Department’s ability to more effectively patrol the park,” the city said.
