First, today’s weather:

A t-storm around in the pm. High: 93 Low: 75.

Here are the top five stories today in Alpharetta-Milton:

  1. Protestors gathered in the main corridors of Alpharetta to demand abortion rights. The protest occurred on Jul. 2 and culminated at City Hall. The protestors chanted “My body, my choice” while decrying the Supreme Court’s Jun. 24 overturn of Roe v. Wade. The protestors marched about 1.18 miles and reportedly included individuals of all ages. (Alpharetta-Roswell Herald)
  2. The City of Alpharetta and the City of Milton have offered a $25,000 settlement to a former solicitor. The payment would settle all filed claims alleging that she was passed over to fill a position based on her age and race. Fran Shoenthal McQueen Served as a solicitor for almost 20 years before she was replaced by Kelsie Mattox in April. (Alpharetta-Roswell Herald)

  4. The Fulton County special grand jury has subpoenaed key members of President Trump’s legal team.

  5. The City of Alpharetta has issued a statement regarding the delayed Monday night fireworks display. The weather delayed the show to 10:40 pm β€” more than an hour past its original 9:30 pm posted start time. The display could not be rescheduled to a different day due to contract stipulations with the display’s vendor. The city apologized for the confusion and hopes that the weather will not impact next year’s display. (City of Alpharetta)
