Tucker’s Mayor and City Council held a meeting and a work session on Monday night, addressing several topics including the City’s first-ever Transportation Master Plan. Following public input and discussion of several amendments, Council voted unanimously to table the matter until their meeting on September 9. Much of the discussion surrounded the widening of collector roads like Cooledge Road.
The Mayor and Council also held a first read and public hearing on a rezoning and concurrent variances for a 13-unit single family detached development on Saren Court. This is the result of a legal settlement of a case that came before the Council in 2018 and was denied. A vote is expected at the upcoming Council meeting on August 26.
Council heard a presentation from the City’s Code Enforcement Manager about the need to amend the nuisance code to address vegetation. The matter was a first read and could see a vote at the Council’s next meeting.
One issue that was approved by the Council was a contract for park trash can installation with F.H. Paschen. The contract is for $89,375 and will see 60 trash cans installed in nine parks, including trash cans on certain hiking trails. The move is an effort to cut down on litter in the parks.
Earlier in the evening, the Mayor and City Council held a work session to discuss a number of issues. Work sessions are useful for the Council as a whole to provide direction to City staff on how to proceed on specific projects. There are no votes or formal actions taken in a work session.
The City Council will meet next on August 26. They will hold a work session at 5:30 p.m. to be followed by the regular meeting at 7:00 p.m.
