Lawrenceville officials have big issue to address in 2016: Who will be the new city manager?

Current City Manager Bob Baroni announced during a called council meeting on Wednesday that he is retiring from his position after more than 40 years a member of Lawrenceville’s government. The council voted to accept his retirement and retain him as a consultant throughout 2016 to aid in the leadership transition.

The plan is to complete the transition in February 2017, according to the city.

“I decided it was time for me to retire because I’m at an age where I’m ready to have more free time to spend with my family and my grandkids,” Baroni said on Thursday.

Baroni was named city manager in August 2011 after the city council voted to create the position. Prior to that, he had served as city clerk for decades.

His work began in 1971, though when he was hired to serve as the city’s parks and recreation director. After a year and a half of doing that, however, he left to do a two-year stint with Reader’s Digest before he returned to Lawrenceville in 1974 to begin his tenure as city clerk.

In a statement, Lawrenceville officials praised Baroni for “unwavering leadership” and helping put the city in a “fiscally solid position” despite economic ups and downs over the last 42 years.

Baroni said he will miss working with Lawrenceville’s staff and residents, calling himself “blessed” to have done so for more than four decades, however. He said he considers the staff that has been built up in the city to be his biggest accomplishment because he considers them to responsible for the city’s success.

“We have great people in Lawrenceville and have created a family atmosphere that provides the opportunity for great daily interactions,” he said.

The city posted video from the meeting on Thursday, which shows Councilman Tony Powell was choked up over the news of Baroni’s retirement.

“It is impossible to report the excellence of Bob’s work,” Powell told his colleagues. “The significance of this day and the event that we’re approving — it should be received by the city with real gratitude and the excellence of his work is probably housed in boxes and boxes and boxes (held by the city clerk).”

As news of Baroni’s retirement got out in the community, residents and other community leaders, including Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful CEO Connie Wiggins, offered their thanks to him on the city’s Facebook page.

“I have learned so much from him over the past 35 years,” Wiggins wrote. “He has made a difference in so many people’s lives. Lawrenceville and Gwinnett are better because of his many years of service.”

But in a statement released on Wednesday with the announcement of his retirement, Baroni said he couldn’t wait to see what the future held for the city.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to have served my community all these years and look forward to watching it continue to grow upon the solid foundations that so many have laid over the years,” he said.

It's Time to Spring into Action! 

According to City of Lawrenceville Councilman Bob Clark , there are a dozen good neighbor practices that promote harmony and pride in our community. These practices keep our neighborhood clean, neat and enhance property values.

Good practices make good neighbors. 

1. Smile and wave to other drivers or pedestrians.

2. Keep speed in the neighborhood under the speed limit of 25 mph.

3. Place trash for pick-up at the top of your driveway on the evening before or day of pickup. Pick up newspapers each morning.

4. Retrieve garbage cans the afternoon of pickup and store out of sight.

5. On a weekly basis, mow and trim around trees, driveway edges, and the street curb.

6. Keep your home and mailbox repaired and painted. Place house number so that it is visible from the street.

7. Park only on hard surfaces in the front of your home and on hard or gravel surfaces to the side or rear of your home.

8. Keep your driveway in good repair.

9. Do not park routinely or overnight on neighborhood streets.

10. Park work trucks at work, no in residential driveways.

11. Keep radio, television, or powered music sounds inside your home or very low outside your home.

12. Store household or yard care equipment and material out of sight.


Good practices make neighborhoods shine.
