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 Sugar Hill 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 Sugar Hill.

 Smart Home Installation Sugar Hill, 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 Sugar Hill, 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 Sugar Hill, GA, who can inspect your breaker panel and recommend upgrades if necessary.

 Electrical Safety Inspection Company Sugar Hill, 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.

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

Sugar Hill council approves design reviews, greenlights office building with warehouse space

At the Sugar Hill City Council meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 15, City Manager Paul Radford updated the public on the progress of the recently formed Sugar Hill Department of Public Safety.

At the Sugar Hill City Council meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 15, City Manager Paul Radford updated the public on the progress of the recently formed Sugar Hill Department of Public Safety. The January meeting saw the swearing in of deputy chief marshals Jose Collazo and Andy Smith by Chief Marshal Diane King.

“They continue to work on the department’s standard operating procedures and putting in place the necessary letter agreements with area law enforcement agencies,” Radford said. “The staff are visible in the community and will continue to fine tune schedules, coverage areas and coordination of coverage times.”

Radford expects the department will be fully staffed with five officers and one administrative assistant by mid-April.

City clerk Jane Whittington also reminded the community that the special election to fill the City Council Post 4 seat vacated by Nic Greene will be held March 15. Early voting will begin on Monday, Feb. 21, and run through Friday, March 11. Voters can cast their ballots from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Council member Taylor Anderson mentioned the Sweep the Hooch event, which will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 26. The annual river cleanup sees hundreds of volunteers gather together to remove trash from across the Chattahoochee watershed.

The council went on to approve a number of agenda items that received no objections from the community, including a design review for an individual’s new home, a design review and stream buffer variance for a new community of townhomes on Nelson Brogdon Boulevard and a design review for residential and commercial developments in the previous junkyard at 1450 Peachtree Industrial Boulevard.

The city council also heard an application for a change in conditions to construct an office and warehouse building at 4810 Wages Way.

Ronald Taylor, a neighboring resident to the property, spoke briefly to ensure the privacy conditions he had previously discussed with the council and the applicant were still in place.

Joshua Page then voiced his objection on behalf of himself and his neighbors on Hidden Circle Drive. He cited traffic and noise as his primary concerns regarding the business.

“You would be surprised how many speed demons come through … it’s kind of upsetting and alarming,” Page said. “I’m not sure if the public safety department … if that could kind of be in their purview to ensure that when it’s after 7 p.m., that they’re actually going around to make sure that that business or those businesses are actually closed and not doing business.”

The applicant was then given the chance to speak and explain that the site would be used as offices and storage for e-commerce businesses, not retail or high-traffic shops. The council also assured Page that noise mandates are monitored by the department of public safety. The ordinance was approved unanimously.

The council also unanimously denied a special use permit for a massage establishment at 4450 Nelson Brogdon Road without comment.

Council members also rejected a request for proposal for a 22-acre park construction manager at risk due to lack of applicants.

Finally, the city council voted to approve a shortlist of candidates for on-call engineering services for the city.

This came after Radford disclosed what he deemed a potential conflict of interest since his daughter recently accepted a position with Atlas Technical Consultants, one of the applicants. She would be working with the Georgia Department of Transportation and would have no interaction with the city of Sugar Hill.

“I’ve talked to our attorneys about this one … my position is not in violation of state law, it’s not in violation of our code of ethics nor is it in violation of my membership with the International City Managers Association, but I think in an overabundance of caution, I need to announce it,” Radford said.

After Mayor Brandon Hembree praised Radford for erring on the side of caution, the council unanimously approved the shortlist, which included Atlas Technical Consultants.

It’s Wunderbar! Success of the New Sugar Hill Distillery is in the Details.

At first glance, the new Sugar Hill Distillery seems like a “wunderbar,” (German for wonderful), place to kick back with a craft brew and friends.

At first glance, the new Sugar Hill Distillery seems like a “wunderbar,” (German for wonderful), place to kick back with a craft brew and friends. But take a closer look and you’ll see three distinct brands within one very ambitious operation: The Sugar Hill Distillery, Apparition Brewing and Wunderbar Bierhaus.

Established in 2016, Sugar Hill Distillery was selling honey from their honey bee farm during the city’s tent events. Fast forward to 2021 and they’re now a full-service Euro bistro serving homemade whiskey and other fine spirits including a gluten free alcohol, Euro German fare, and craft beer all under the same roof. If that sounds like a tall order, it is! The Distillery is the first in the nation to be dual permitted as a Distillery and Brewery sharing the same bonded space and equipment for both processes.

From the Sugar Hill Distillery’s handmade wooden tables and barrel-inspired bar to its divine desserts and herbs that grow along the fence of its outdoor Biergarten (beer garden), there is so much to take notice of and appreciate here.

That’s because owners, Jay and Keri Liebrock have poured their collective skills and passions into every detail of Sugar Hill Distillery. Jay, or “JD” to most, is the brew master and distiller. As a retired Director of Intelligence in the U.S. Army with an entrepreneurial spirit, he wanted to create a legacy for his family’s children and grandchildren. His wife and partner Keri, brings years of restaurant industry experience to the Wunderbar Bierhaus & Euro Bistro. They are proud to have the talented Executive Chef Morgan Pollard bringing Keri’s restaurant menu to a delicious reality.

“There are lots of special details that have gone into Sugar Hill Distillery,” says Bar Manager Anne Marie Dozier. The siding on the handcrafted bar emulates a barrel. Elegant labels adorn bottles of spirits made on premises. Even their modern pendant lighting was custom made. Visitors of Sugar Hill Distillery are invited to take a seat at a long table for family style dining. “In Germany, it’s customary for everyone to come together and knock on the table as they sit down and join the group,” explains Dozier. “You never know. You might make a new friend.”

A large viewing window inside the dining room gives customers a peek of onsite distilling and brewing operations. Outside is a lovely covered Biergarten with live music on Friday and Saturday nights. It’s also hard to leave Sugar Hill Distillery empty-handed. Their fully stocked gift shop offers spirits to go, t-shirts, wooden carved keychains, candy, homemade honey and much more.

Housed in the original City of Sugar Hill community center and part of downtown Sugar Hill’s SHINE district, you can purchase a drink in a non-glass SHINE marked cup and take it to go within the SHINE district boundaries.

To experience this new downtown hotspot, visit the Sugar Hill Distillery at 1166 Church Street for lunch daily and brunch on the weekends. They’re also open for dinner Monday through Thursday 10 am to 10 pm, Friday 11 am to 11 pm, Saturday 10 am to 11 pm and Sunday 9 am to 10 pm. Look for the vintage car parked in their lot!

The Biergarten is available for booking of your next special event! Need more info? Email keri@sugarhillstills.com

Prost! (Cheers!)

Downtown Sugar Hill is ushering in the winter season with the Have An Ice Day ice skating rink now through Feb. 20.

Located right behind Sugar Hill City Hall, the ice rink offers skating and winter fun for all ages and skill levels from beginner to expert. The rink provides skate rentals as well as concessions, offering a number of snacks and both hot and cold beverages.

To accommodate beginner skaters and younger children, the rink also provides skating aids, and tables set up around the perimeter of the rink allow parents who prefer not to skate to keep a close eye on their children. The ice is also professionally maintained by a Zamboni to ensure a quality skating experience.

The event is family friendly, playing Christmas music as patrons of all ages skate in a spacious environment.

“I love all the stuff that Sugar Hill does and puts on for the community,” said Sugar Hill resident Robbie Parenti, who visited the rink with his wife and two children. “It’s awesome to kind of get into the spirit of the holidays and bring the family up and just come skate and have a good time.”

Have An Ice Day is also welcoming the Georgia Figure Skating Club, which will perform shows on Dec. 5, 19 and 26 and Jan. 2. The shows are included with the cost of ice rink admission, and all performances begin at 5 p.m.

Featuring eight skaters from ages 4 to 41, the performances will showcase a number of figure skating talents from beginner to advanced level jumps and spins.

Offering advice for new ice skaters, Georgia Figure Skating Club coach Randy Trabing said, “Don’t wear thick socks and get skates that fit tight … you want that foot going with the skate, not skating around the boot … if you feel like you’re going to fall, just touch your knees.”

After his impressive performance on Sunday, Nov. 28, 19-year-old figure skater Charlie Liu, added, “You’ve just got to put your arms out and start marching.”

Eliana Dounaeski, a 10-year-old figure skater in the program who recently placed first in her championship series, also advised, “Never give up, and if you fall, don’t cry.”

Admission to the ice skating rink is $10 and $8 for children younger than 8. Skate rentals are an additional $4, and a season pass is available for $139. The rink is open every day except most Mondays and Wednesdays, but operating hours vary. More information can be found here.

Georgia landscaper ordered to pay $175K in back wages, penalties after US Department of Labor finds violations of H-2A worker program

SUGAR HILL, GA – A Sugar Hill landscape company violated requirements of the federal H-2A temporary agricultural worker programs related to hours, wages, transportation costs and work assignments, an investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor determined.Following the investigation and subsequent lawsuit by the Solicitor of Labor, the department’s ...

SUGAR HILL, GA – A Sugar Hill landscape company violated requirements of the federal H-2A temporary agricultural worker programs related to hours, wages, transportation costs and work assignments, an investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor determined.

Following the investigation and subsequent lawsuit by the Solicitor of Labor, the department’s Office of Administrative Law Judges ordered Resendiz Pine Straw LLC to pay $136,971 in back wages to 110 workers, and affirmed the assessment of a $39,016 civil money penalty due to the nature of the violations. The order also debars Resendiz from participating in the H-2A program for three years.

Investigators with the department’s Wage and Hour Division found the employer – operating as Resendiz Pine Straw LLC and Tobacco – misrepresented the work location of the employees in the H-2A application and sent some employees nearly 600 miles away to do farm work in Arcadia, Florida, when there was not enough work in Sugar Hill. By doing so, the employer engaged in cost-shifting and failed to provide workers at least three-quarters of the hours of work stated in the original job offer. Resendiz failed to uphold the terms of the H-2A contract regarding pay, duties and housing.

The division also found Resendiz did not reimburse workers for all their transportation costs as the law requires, failed to provide them with copies of their contracts and deducted time for breaks and lunches illegally. These deductions resulted in underpayment of wages.

“The H-2A visa program allows agricultural employers to hire temporary workers to address labor shortages. These H-2A workers keep food on our tables, allow agricultural employers to stay in business, and help our communities thrive,” said Wage and Hour Division District Director Nicolas Ratmiroff in Tampa, Florida. “The hard work done by these men and women is vital to food production and the agricultural community. We encourage any employer with questions about pay practices, hours of work or any of our H visa programs to contact us for guidance.”

H-2A programs govern labor standards for temporary, nonimmigrant workers who come to the U.S. to perform agricultural labor or services of a temporary or seasonal nature. Learn more about the H-2A program and other laws enforced by the Wage and Hour Division, contact the division’s toll-free helpline at 866-4US-WAGE (487-9243).
