City Council Wrap-Up – November 27, 2017
Tucker’s City Council met Monday night at the City Hall Annex, voting on a pair of ordinances, while deferring a vote on a proposed 19-unit residential development.
One ordinance, which passed on a unanimous vote, will prescribe rules and regulations for collection of garbage and refuse, as well as the unlawful deposit of litter in the City. The second ordinance, also passing on a 7-0 vote, makes changes to the building regulations code that will help the City deal with property owners who are in violation and whose properties will need City abatement. This will apply to ongoing code enforcement citations involving cases such as overgrown properties that are not responding to environmental court.
The anticipated vote on a single-family development on Saren Court was granted a deferral at the request of the applicant. STS Development Group asked for more time to redesign the site plan as it was determined that there was an intermittent stream on adjoining parcels. Council approved the deferral to the December 11 meeting, when there will be a public hearing and anticipated final vote.
Mayor Auman also issued a proclamation in honor of World AIDS Day, to be observed on December 1. Calandra Campbell from Tucker-based Alpha and Omega HIV/AIDS Foundation was on hand to receive the proclamation.
The Mayor and City Council will meet Tuesday for a Council retreat. Their next regular scheduled meeting will be December 11 at 7 p.m. at the City Hall Annex (4228 First Avenue).
