City Council Wrap-Up February 11, 2019

Tucker’s City Council met Monday night voting to allocate of $2.3 million for new road resurfacing projects. The City’s SPLOST-funded resurfacing effort got off to a solid start, as 21 poorly-conditioned streets were resurfaced in 2018. City Engineer Ken Hildebrandt presented to Council on plans for a spring resurfacing push that will cover 24 streets, starting with Livsey Drive. Of the $2.3 million, $1.2 million is a combination of money left over from the 2018 resurfacings and higher-than-expected revenues. The remaining $1.1 million was unallocated money that will be transferred from the City Manager’s budget to the City Engineer’s budget. The spring projects will be handled by Atlanta Paving, the same firm that did the 2018 resurfacings for the City.

Council also voted unanimously to approve $39,793 to replace two aging HVAC units at Tucker Recreation Center. They then held a first read of an ordinance to bring the nuisance code into conformance with state law. The updated code would address unsafe properties or structures and empower the City to remedy those by imposing a tax lien, when necessary. A second read and vote are anticipated at the Council’s next meeting on February 25.
