This was a move to tie up loose ends on the past fiscal year, which ended on June 30. The ordinance was approved unanimously. The second vote was unanimous approval of an ordinance to amend Tucker’s land development code. The move addresses changes and clarifications in the areas of soil erosion, sedimentation control, tree protection and stream buffer protection.The next meeting of the Mayor and City Council will be on September 14 at 7 p.m. at the City Hall Annex (4228 First Avenue).
