Electricity - it's one of the most important innovations in the history of humankind. It's hard to imagine life without electricity, and for good reason. Nearly every aspect of our lives is affected by electricity in some form or fashion, from the way you wash your clothes to the effort you put in at work. From a residential standpoint, you need it to cook, clean, entertain, and live comfortably. For commercial purposes, electricity is used to power the computers needed to keep America moving.

Panel Breaker is Tripped

If you don't have any power in your home, it might be time to check your electrical panel to see if there are any tripped breakers. If you spot a tripped breaker, try your best to switch it over to its original position. If you can't, remember that some breakers need to be flipped to the "off" position before turning it back on. If you don't have any luck, give our office a call. We'll send a trained residential electrician in Atlanta to your home to fix the problem on-site.

Overhead Fan Stops Working

If you have an overhead fan in your living room or bedroom, you know how quickly it can accumulate dust. Most homeowners clean up using a rod duster. However, sometimes homeowners accidentally hit the fan direction switch when doing so. But, instead of flipping it "on" or "off," they bump it into a limbo zone where neither direction is selected. When this happens, your overhead fan will not spin. If one of your fans stops working suddenly, this is one of the most common reasons why. If you're sure you didn't hit the fan direction switch, it could be an indication of a larger problem. In this case, call our office for a free phone consultation. We'll troubleshoot with you over the phone and if necessary, send out an electrician.

Kitchen Breaker Keeps Tripping

If your home was built in the last 35 years, chances are it has two 20-amp circuits running to your kitchen countertop outlets. Newer homes will have three circuits. If you're constantly tripping the breaker to your kitchen, it's most likely because you have too many electrical devices connected to the same circuit. To help alleviate this problem, place appliances like coffee makers and toasters on two different circuits. That way, they can share the load.

At the end of the day, your home is your place of solitude and relaxation. But, when you have electrical issues in your home, things can quickly go from peaceful to problematic. Whether you're renovating your home and need a new room wired for power or your panel breaker keeps giving your problems, L&M Electric is here to assist. If you have questions about an issue or need to schedule service, our team is ready to help answer your questions and coordinate the best time for a residential electrician to come to your home in Atlanta.

 Smart Home Installation Atlanta, GA

Install Surge Protectors

Intense lighting storms can cause powerful surges of electricity that ruin your home's electrical appliances and amenities. Surge protectors installed at your electrical panel can help prevent these surges by grounding the electricity running through your home. They do so by directing it away from your electrical devices. This common solution is inexpensive, effective, and always a better choice than replacing expensive items like TVs and computers.

 Electrical Repairs Atlanta, GA

Examine Your Breaker Panel

Breaker panels control the power to your home. When they go bad or are damaged, there's a good chance that you will lose power to most of the rooms in your house. Open your breaker panel and keep a sharp eye out for signs of corrosion and rust. Double-check that each breaker you see flips on and off properly. If you notice corrosion or if the breaker switches won't flip, it's time to get in touch with a residential electrician in Atlanta, GA, who can inspect your breaker panel and recommend upgrades if necessary.

 Electrical Safety Inspection Company Atlanta, GA

Test Your GFIs

GFIs, or Ground Fault Interrupters, are similar to surge protectors in that they prevent electrical damage from happening in your home. The primary job of a GFI is to prevent electrical shocks that happen during a ground fault. Because water is a conductor of electricity, GFIs should be installed anywhere that an outlet comes into contact with water. You should try to test your GFIs every month, if possible, to ensure that they are working correctly. When you look closely at your GFI, you will notice a "test" and a "reset" button. Hit the "test" button to trip the GFI outlet and then hit "reset" to restore power. If your outlet resets, your GFI is working as it should. If not, you need to replace your GFI outlet. Because electricity is involved, we recommend hiring a professional to install new GFIs in your home. That way, you know the job is done right.

Replace Outdated Light Bulbs

The right light bulb can add the perfect amount of ambiance to your home. Eventually, however, even the best light bulbs will need replacing. While they don't need checking every month, it's a good idea to inspect all your bulbs at the beginning of the year. If any of your bulbs are dead, you should replace them. You should also consider replacing bulbs that are incandescent with LED lights. LED light bulbs may cost more upfront but use less electricity and are more efficient over the long run.

Electrical Services Atlanta, GA

Schedule a Home Safety Inspection

In terms of preventative maintenance, scheduling a safety inspection for your home's electrical systems should be a high priority. These inspections will shine a light on the electrical features in your home that need to be fixed. Most modern electrical fires are caused by short circuit arcs, defective insulation, or broken wiring. An inspection conducted by a qualified electrician will help determine what needs to be fixed so you and your family stay safe in your home. Your inspector should cover your whole home and will examine common features such as:

  • Breakers
  • Fans
  • Exposed Wiring
  • Electrical Panels
  • Circuits
  • Switches
  • Outlets and More

How to apply to Georgia's $850 a month guaranteed income program

ATLANTA — A new guaranteed income program in Georgia working to help more than 650 Black women across the state is taking applicants.

A partnership between the Georgia Resilience & Opportunity Fund (GRO Fund) & GiveDirectly is tackling income inequality in the state through a $13 million privately funded income guarantee program.

As of Monday, the initiative In Her Hands began accepting applications to give more than 650 Black women $850 a month over the next two years.

This program is different from Atlanta's guaranteed income program which is publicly funded. In Her Hands raised funds through local and federal funds in addition to private donors and sponsors.

“Georgia has some of the starkest economic insecurity and instability in the country, especially for Black and Brown women. The GRO Fund is setting out to test big ideas to tackle this challenge. But the work is grounded in people first, not theory,” Atlanta Councilmember and co-chair of the Old Fourth Ward Economic Security Task Force, Amir Farokhi said in a release.

This first project site will focus on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s childhood neighborhood, Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward, as he was a proud advocate for guaranteed income and income equality throughout his career. This site will be the focus of the first round of the program in which 220 people will be selected to receive benefits.

Eligibility requirements include:

The release statement said eligible applicants will be selected through a lottery pool. Half of the recipients will receive $850 a month for 24 months. The other half will receive a first, lump sum payment for $4,300 followed by 23 months of $700 payments.

For the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood alone, the program will select 220 people to receive benefits. Another 440 will be selected over two rounds later this summer.

While the second site will be in Clay, Terrell and Randolph Counties in Southwest Georgia, the final project site has yet to be disclosed. The final site is expected to be announced later this month.

Applications for these rounds will open in June and July respectively.

Applications for Atlanta's Old Fourth Ward will stay open until May 15 at 11:59 p.m. Those interested can visit the application site here.

City of Atlanta fires two employees over alleged ties to bribery scheme

The city of Atlanta has fired two longtime city employees whose names surfaced in the bribery trial of former political operative and city employee Mitzi Bickers.Cotena P.

The city of Atlanta has fired two longtime city employees whose names surfaced in the bribery trial of former political operative and city employee Mitzi Bickers.

Cotena P. Alexander, deputy commissioner in the city’s Department of Transportation, and Rita Braswell, an administrative program manager in Public Works, were named as participants in the bribery scheme during the federal trial in March. They have been on paid administrative leave ever since, although neither has been charged.

Braswell was fired Monday and Alexander was fired Friday, according to letters of termination obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Alexander’s and Braswell’s city benefits will continue through the end of April and May, respectively, according to the letters.

“In accordance with Georgia law, your employment with the City of Atlanta is at-will and, therefore, may be terminated with or without cause,” the letters say.

For the past several weeks, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution had been investigating questions about $113,000 in federal Paycheck Protection Program loans obtained through side businesses registered to Alexander’s home address in the city of South Fulton. The AJC published a story Wednesday morning about the questionable loans. The city released information about Alexander’s termination Wednesday afternoon.

Alexander worked for the city for 22 years. She was promoted to deputy commissioner of the Department of Transportation in January, earning a salary of $170,000 a year, according to the city.

Federal prosecutors alleged that Alexander took tens of thousands of dollars from Bickers after Atlanta’s 2014 SnowJam storm, in exchange for steering contracts to Elvin “E.R.” Mitchell Jr’s construction company.

Prosecutors didn’t give an exact amount, but said she used the funds Bickers paid her to purchase about $30,000 in money orders to pay off credit card debt.

Braswell was name-checked in Mitchell’s testimony as a conspirator in the bribery scheme. Braswell joined the city in 2005 and has been a city administrative program manager since July 2011. Her salary was $141,172.

Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens has said federal authorities never told the city about the women’s alleged roles in the scheme, and that his office only learned of the allegations through the trial.

During his AJC editorial board meeting last month, the mayor suggested Alexander and Braswell may be under investigation from other agencies.

“As it relates to those two individuals, there’s an investigation going on by higher authorities than in the city,” Dickens said in April. “But we’re also dealing with that as a personnel issue.”

Dickens also brought up the women during a speech at the Rotary Club of Atlanta Monday afternoon, saying the bribery scheme occurred “two administrations back — not anything from me or the previous office holder.”

“Some current folks were named, so immediately we took action on those current folks,” Dickens said. “And...everybody that has Atlanta in their name got a letter from me that set the tone that we’re going to operate this government with integrity and the people depend on it. We are looking at every practice that we have to make sure that it’s done the right way.”

Our reporting:

Investigative reporting by the AJC in 2017 linked former city official Mitzi Bickers to contractor Elvin “E.R.” Mitchell Jr., the first person to plead guilty in the Atlanta City Hall corruption probe. City employees Cotena Alexander and Rita Braswell were named as conspirators in the bribery scheme during Bickers federal corruption trial in March. An AJC investigation of side businesses linked to Alexander found the companies received $113,000 in federal Paycheck Protection Program loans during the pandemic. One of the loans was for $99,000 for a trucking company that had no public record of running trucks.

Atlanta, GA — The East Lake Foundation, along with Atlanta Housing, Invest Atlanta and Columbia Residential celebrated the grand reopening of the Villages of East Lake on Monday, May 9. The project included the preservation and renovation of the historic mixed-income community.

The event on Monday included a ribbon cutting ceremony with remarks from Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens; Christopher Nunn, Commissioner, Georgia Department of Community Affairs; Eugene Jones, Jr., president & CEO, Atlanta Housing; Josie Braziel, resident of The Villages of East Lake; Jenna Kelly, group regional vice president – Georgia, Truist Bank; Catherine Woodling, deputy executive director, East Lake Foundation; and Shannon Heath-Longino, former resident, community advocate and senior vice president, Truist Community Capital, according to a press release.

This financial transaction and subsequent renovation represents one of the largest preservations of affordable housing in Georgia and is an integral part of East Lake Foundation’s mission and continued holistic revitalization of the East Lake community. This partnership between the city of Atlanta, East Lake Foundation, Atlanta Housing, Georgia Department of Community Affairs, Truist Bank, and Columbia Residential has positioned this property for long-term operational and financial sustainability.

“We are grateful to join with our Villages of East Lake residents and partners to celebrate this much-anticipated grand reopening,” Woodling said. “We’re thrilled that this incredible effort, in addition to several new East Lake Foundation housing initiatives, will significantly increase housing availability and diversity in the East Lake neighborhood.”

Braziel has been a resident at The Villages of East Lake for more than 10 years. She is an active participant with the East Lake Foundation’s Resident and Community Support Program that she credits for helping her land her dream job at a local school system. Her daughter, who began attending Drew Charter School in kindergarten, will soon graduate and has plans to start college in the fall.

While the renovations of the Villages have been extensive, Braziel is grateful to all the partners that made this work possible.

“I was blown away when I walked into my apartment home after the renovations. I was so proud to call this our neighborhood,” she said.

The Villages of East Lake was built in the mid-1990s and has 542 units, including town homes, duplexes, garden apartments and various amenities, which have all undergone extensive renovations.

Fifty percent of the units are subsidized by Atlanta Housing to families making 30% of AMI or less and the remaining 50% are provided at market rate.

The upgrades included new exteriors, flooring, cabinets, a fitness center, and landscaping, among others.

“More than 20 years ago, this community became a national model for how to reclaim a neighborhood for the greater good—a reclaimed community, planned intentionally to offer residents tools to help them thrive,” Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens said. “Thank you to Atlanta Housing, the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, Columbia Residential, Truist Bank and the East Lake Foundation for being the model of how public, private partnerships should work.”

Atlanta Housing President and CEO Eugene Jones Jr. added that Atlanta Housing is proud to have played a leading role in the establishment of the Villages at East Lake and is proud to contribute to the renovation.

“The Villages of East Lake remain a shining beacon for affordable housing across America,” Jones said.

Dr. Eloisa Klementich, president and CEO of Invest Atlanta, said the redevelopment exemplifies the power of what an equity-focused, community-led strategy for affordable housing can do.

“Tax-exempt bond financing from Invest Atlanta helped to ensure the residents of this community have access to high-quality affordable housing in close proximity to good schools, a grocery store, green space, and other amenities. Since 2010, Invest Atlanta’s multifamily housing development program has supported the creation of almost 10,000 affordable units throughout the city,” Klementich said.

East Lake is an example of community revitalization, which involves various partners collaborating, said Christopher Nunn, commissioner at the Georgia Department of Community Affairs.

“DCA is proud to be a long-time partner in the re-capitalization, renovations, and preservations that provide quality affordable housing for our deserving citizens both now and in the future,” Nunn said.

Jim Grauley, CEO of Columbia Residential, added that the firm was proud to be part of the project.

“Columbia Residential is honored to have been asked to lead the preservation and renovation of the Villages of East Lake,” Grauley said. “I especially want to thank our residents for working so closely with us, and our on-site management, resident services and construction teams for their patience, diligence and dedication while working the renovations during the extraordinary times of the pandemic. Our company and team are proud to serve this great Atlanta community.”
