Finding a certified, experienced locksmith is no easy task. Sure, dozens of companies out there will dispatch an indifferent "technician" that offers "quick" solutions when you lose your keys.

If you are a business owner in Georgia, you have the weighty responsibility of protecting your patrons and securing your businesses' assets. The most common way for entrepreneurs to keep their business safe is by having a commercial locksmith in Roswell install quality, reliable locks on every entry point of your storefront. But, unfortunately, many business owners take the least amount of effort necessary when it comes to protecting their business.
Whether you own several franchise locations or have a single storefront, it only takes one break-in to make you realize the importance of installing high-quality locks for your commercial property. Sadly, at that point, it's too late - your ability to provide for your family and pay your bills has been compromised. For that reason alone, it's always better to be proactive about your businesses' security rather than reactive.

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) grading system was developed years ago to standardize a testing procedure to measure the durability and strength of a door lock. This grading system applies to both residential and commercial door locks. Composed of three different grades, the ANSI grading system gives homeowners and business owners a good idea of lock quality and reliability. ANSI examines six different qualities to determine a lock's grade:
These locks offer the highest level of security and are most often used by institutions like hospitals, schools, and even museums. These locks also have the highest life expectancy, though they can be much more complex and require an expert residential or commercial locksmith in cityname to install. In today's day and age, many more homeowners are opting for Grade 1 locks (like electronic locks) for the most peace of mind. This classification of lock must hold up against 800,000 cycles, six door strikes and a 360-pound weight test.
These locks are great for residential areas with more foot traffic, like a door that leads to an apartment complex or suite of rooms. These locks can also suffice for small businesses that need a higher level of security than Grade 3 locks. Use these locks when you want to secure access to areas with valuable equipment or sensitive documents. This classification of lock requires 400,000 cycles, four door strikes, and a 250-pound weight test.
This grade of lock is best suited for residential purposes and is considered standard door hardware. This kind of lock is the least expensive and should never be used in a high-traffic area like a lobby or storefront. However, these locks would be suitable for areas without much foot traffic like storage closets or areas without expensive merchandise. Because these locks are easiest to bypass, consider upgrading your Grade 3 locks with anti-bump and anti-pick technology. This classification of lock requires 200,000 lock cycles, two door strikes, and a 150-pound weight test.

Taskforce to assess future of Canton StreetIt's been a growing issue in Roswell, but now plans to turn busy Canton Street into a walking promenade have been paused.

It's been a growing issue in Roswell, but now plans to turn busy Canton Street into a walking promenade have been paused. City leaders formed a taskforce to take a closer look at the plan and how it may affect businesses in the area. FOX 5 spoke to people on both sides of the issue.
ROSWELL, Ga. - The plan to turn a busy section of a Roswell street into a walking promenade has been paused. Tuesday night, city leaders agreed to form a task form to take a closer look at the plan and its impact.
"Nothing says ‘Welcome’ like a closed street in front of your restaurant," said Ryan Pernice, who owns two restaurants along Canton Street.
Like other business owners in the immediate area, Ryan Pernice was shocked to learn several weeks ago that there were plans to shut down a portion of the bustling road to traffic.
"We have these businesses we've invested millions of dollars in and all of a sudden we see on Facebook that the street in front of our restaurant is going to be closed," said Pernice.
While the mayor and other city leaders believed it would bring an even more energetic vibe to the area, many business owners believe it will add to the parking and traffic problems, and would hurt their businesses.
City leaders agreed to form a task force made up of city leaders, business owners, and residents to take a closer look at the impact of Canton Street becoming a walkable promenade.
"Look at the impact and make sure we have all the plans as we go forward, if we create a promenade," said city council member Peter Vanstrom.

"I want to make sure we're listening to them, but I also want to make sure they're thriving and making money," said council member Lee Hills.
No matter what happens down the road, Pernice sees this as a step in the right direction.
"It went from this is happening, the road is closing, to now we're at a point where we have a little more insight in the process. That I call a win," said Pernice.
While there's no timeframe as to when the task force will be formed and how long before they come up with a recommendation on how to proceed, it won't be Memorial Day, as was the initial plan.

ROSWELL, Ga. — When the polls close at 7 p.m. on Election Day in Roswell, candidates gather with their supporters to watch the results roll in.
The supporters of Sarah Beeson, Lyndsey Coates and Michael Del Cerro hosted an election day party at Sunny & Ranney on Oak Street.
With the slimmest margin of victory, incumbent Sarah Beeson defeated challenger Jason Miller by 133 votes for the Post 1 seat.
Councilwoman Beeson was first elected in December 2022 to serve the remainder of former Councilman Marcelo Zapata’s term.
“Last time, I wanted to hear people’s goals and what they wanted to see,” Beeson said. “This time, it’s real-time feedback based of what I’m currently doing, so it’s a different perspective.”
Beeson said Sunny & Ranney, A Peach of the Party and other local businesses approached the three candidates with an offer to help them with their election night party.
Beeson said she, Coates and Dal Cerro have known each other for a few years from attending City Council meetings as citizens.
Incumbent Christine Hall defeated Lyndsey Coates with just over 59 percent of the vote.
Coates served as the president of Roswell NEXT, a nonprofit civic organization, before resigning to run for the Post 3 seat.
Councilwoman Hall was first elected in November 2019. She now serves as liaison to the Finance Department and as mayor pro tempore.
Three candidates qualified to run for the Post 2 seat currently held by Mike Palermo who is stepping down after two terms. Palermo has served as liaison to the Community Development Department.
Because neither Michael Dal Cerro nor Allen Sells received more than 50 percent of votes in the Post 2 contest, the election is headed to a runoff. Sells took about 46 percent of votes, Dal Cerro about 32 percent.
Marisa Periera received 22 percent of the vote, which failed to qualify her for the runoff election.
Both Dal Cerro and Sells have run for Roswell City Council before.
Sells was defeated by Councilwoman Beeson in a runoff election for the Post 1 seat in 2022.
Dal Cerro was defeated by Councilman Will Morthland in a runoff election for the Post 5 seat in 2021.
Dal Cerro and Sells will square off in the Municipal Runoff Election Dec. 5.
David Johnson defeated Jade Terreberry for the Post 4 seat, which has remained open since Peter Vanstrom announced his resignation in July, citing personal reasons. Johnson garnered 54 percent of the vote in Tuesday’s election.
While the total votes cast in each City Council contest varied, more than 13,000 Roswell residents voted.
Mayor Kurt Wilson said he would try to attend all the election night parties, hosted by candidates.
“Whether people like me or don’t like me, my job is to serve everybody,” Wilson said.

ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - The Roswell City Commission approved the fiscal year 2024 budget last week, including another round of hefty funding to grow the city’s fire department.
Roswell is one of the larger cities in Georgia, but its fire department is made up of part-time employees. It’s a five-year plan, beginning with the 2023 budget.
“If we’re not already, our goal is to be the number one family community in America and the first priority is safety,” said council member Christine Hall. “Here we are, the seventh or eighth largest city now in the state of Georgia, I think we were the largest city in the United States that did not have a full-time fire department.”
Last year, the city brought on 21 new fire captains and this year, they’ll grow their staff by even more. The budget will allow them to hire 25 new full-time employees including three new battalion chiefs to help the only one they currently have, nine new lieutenants, and even a full-time logistics captain to help with day-to-day operations like uniforms and fleet maintenance.
“In cities like Roswell where we’re almost 100,000 people and we respond to more than 10,000 calls for service in the fire department every year, it’s important to have dedicated staffing that’s always going to be there,” said Roswell Fire Chief Joe Pennino. “The heavy focus in the fire department is on personnel, as it should be.”
Pennino says staffing the department at full tilt also could cut down on response times, especially for battalion chiefs who are often in charge of running emergency responses smoothly on-scene. He added that having a full-time staff will also allow crews to train together for real-life emergencies, instead of responding to calls with people they may never have worked with or worked with very little.
“They need to train together, just like a sports team or military unit to make sure that they’re well-rehearsed,” he said.
Roswell had been using an unworkable system, Pennino says, of scheduling part-timers and volunteers based on who was available in a given week. The department has 42 square miles to safeguard, and Pennino says the more people the better.
“Public safety it’s a calling, serving the citizens is a calling,” he said. “A lot of people are excited right now at the opportunities that Roswell has to offer.”

ROSWELL, Ga. — Brandi Rhodes has worn many hats in her lifetime. She’s a former model, TV personality, competitive skater, and business executive. But she might be best known for her time in the world of wrestling and the WWE.
Now, you can add a new title to her resume - business owner.
“I was looking to just dive into a new career,” Rhodes told WSB-TV’s Nelson Hicks. “I had just had my daughter. She’s about two years old now. I was professional wrestling, had been in the industry for about 10 years and was determined to make that career work with a child. And it wasn’t working out.”
Rhodes recently opened Naked Mind Yoga + Pilates in Roswell. This new venture has enabled Rhodes to merge fitness, wellness, and mindfulness into a single space.
“After years of wear and tear from the wrestling industry, yoga and pilates is what healed my body and just brought me back to a place of just feeling really centered and feeling really good as a human being. So I really wanted to share that with someone.”
Her husband, wrestler Cody Rhodes, also known as the American Nightmare, attended the grand opening.
“Brandi, what she’s doing here, is really amazing and I know she really wanted to put this together, not just for yoga and pilates in the community, but also to have something for our daughter,” Cody Rhodes said.
“I’m just overwhelmed at how, not what we’ve built here, but her commitment to it.”
Naked Mind Yoga and Pilates allow the Rhodes family to establish even deeper roots in the community where Cody Rhodes grew up.
“We joke in my family, there’s a joke, we’re talking about Roswell, Marietta, Cherokee, Alpharetta, Sandy Springs, Johns Creek, there’s a joke that we always say, ‘Nothing like a Roswell Fall. Nothing like a Johns Creek Summer.’ To us, this is our home,” Cody Rhodes said.
Interested in trying it out? Brandi has utilized everything she’s learned from a lifetime in competitive sports to create a place that caters to athletes and beginners alike.
Naked Mind Yoga and Pilates is located on Crabapple Road in Roswell.

ROSWELL, Ga. — The latest step in the Canton Street closure saga of Roswell has city leaders and the yet-to-be-disbanded task force in agreement that they need more information to understand how closing the busy street would affect businesses and the community.
Roswell city leaders confirmed to Channel 2 Action News that a Friday morning meeting had both the seven-member task force and Roswell City Council moving to hire an analyst before making a decision to temporarily close Canton Street to cars for several weeks.

As a debate amongst community members and leaders unfolded in the intervening months following Wilson’s announcement, city council meetings held public discussions about the potential closure.
The plan, as proposed by Wilson, said Canton Street would be closed to cars and other vehicles but open to pedestrians from Elizabeth Way to Webb Street from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day.
As previously reported, the mayor has repeatedly cited safety concerns in the bustling area, and a way to boost business for the shops there, as reasons to close the street to vehicles.
While the task force was given 45 days to make recommendations, they instead moved to stop their work less than a month in, citing a need for more planning and an urban planning study.
Friday’s city council meeting had both the task force and council aimed at the same goal, being t get more planning data before making a decision.
“Roswell’s mayor and city council agreed in principle to follow the recommendation of a 7-member task force to adequately study the impacts of a potential closure of Canton Street to vehicular traffic,” according to a spokesman for the task force. “Roswell leaders say they would like to complete a city-wide economic study first before moving ahead with any trial closure on Canton Street.”
City officials echoed the sentiment.
“Mayor and Council agreed today that they would like the City’s economic development team to finish its work on the City’s economic development plan which includes Roswell’s downtown area before moving forward with an independent planner to study the economic impact of a trial open streets promenade on Canton Street,” a city spokeswoman said. “The City’s economic development team is slated to finish the City’s economic development plan by the end of this year. At that time, Mayor and Council will consider hiring an independent planner to study the traffic and economic impacts of the promenade.”
As it stands, the next steps for the potential closure and other developments for Canton Street are set as yet to be determined.
