About Ourtown Own A Town Sign In

Keeping your city clean

From Kansas City, Missouri

By Marcus Austin, Ourtown National News Editor 

      Chad Greene Livsey of Snellville Georgia was given an award by the city council of Gwinette county for picking upover  200 bags of trash in the community. Chad is the grandson of Thomas Livsey Sr. whom is affectionately called "The mayor of the Promised Land."  The Promised Land is an hostorical community in Gwinette county,known for housing the largest of the 13 plantation homes to survive the civil war and General Sherman's March to the sea.

      Thomas Livsey Sr started the tradition but since he is getting older, Chad decided to carry on the tradition.  When he was called to the council meeting he thought he was there to lead the pledge of allegiance, but instead he was given a standing ovation and 8 street signs in the community denoting "The Chad Livsey Project "

     This is one tradition that I hope spreads throughout the country.
