Tucker’s Mayor and City Council met Monday night, their last meeting of the month of June. The meeting marked growth for the City of Tucker, literally, as neighbors in the Hughes Pointe subdivision were annexed into the city limits. The neighborhood, which sits on the west side of Chamblee Tucker Road just north of Livsey Elementary School, filed a petition with the City to be annexed. The 35 parcels were brought into the City on a unanimous Council vote.
Council took action on several additional items, including:
- Approving a special land use permit (SLUP) for minor auto repair at 3145 Tucker Norcross Road.
- Adopting an ordinance to amend the City Code, strengthening the regulations pertaining to disorderly conduct.
- Approving a contract for construction of a bridge on the red trail at Henderson Park. That contract is with JOC Construction for $30,736.
- Approving a contract for construction of a second dock on Henderson Park’s Lake Erin. That contract is with JOC Construction for $50,060.
- Approving contracts with city service providers Jacobs and InterDev.
Prior to the meeting, Council was busy, holding a pair of public hearings (11:00 a.m. and 6:45 p.m.) on the proposed millage rate, as well as a work session to discuss public works in the City.
The next City Council meeting will be July 13 at 7 p.m. at the City Hall Annex (4228 First Avenue).
