The City of Atlanta has announced the integration of WorkSource Atlanta with Invest Atlanta—aligning the city’s workforce development arm with its economic development arm. Nearly a year ago, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms appointed Kimberlyn Daniel to serve as interim Executive Director of WorkSource to establish a strategic plan that ensures the program serves Atlanta residents and to meet the deadlines of the grant programs. “This integration pairs two of the most pivotal services provided by the city, which will result in world-class training and placement for the people of Atlanta—particularly those with barriers to employment—into the jobs Invest Atlanta is recruiting, retaining and growing,” Bottoms said in a statement.

Independent, Little Five Points-based radio station WRFG 89.3FM will mark its 46th birthday on Saturday, July 27, from 3 to 6 p.m. at Ormewood Church, 1071 Delaware Ave. Guests will mingle with hosts, producers and engineers  during the celebration, which will  feature music, refreshments, a birthday cake, and some special surprises.
