Tucker’s Mayor and City Council met Monday night for the first time in May, taking a major step in continuing the City’s road resurfacing program. The Council voted 6-0 to award a nearly $48,000 contract for assessing the condition of the City’s streets to Stantec. Three years ago, Stantec performed the same service, traversing every mile of Tucker’s public roadways to assess the conditions. The data was used to help city officials prioritize which roads would be resurfaced first in the past four SPLOST-funded road resurfacing campaigns. Roads will be re-prioritized moving forward based on this new data.
Next, Council held first reads and public hearings on a pair of issues. The first was an ordinance to amend the City Code, adopting a model ordinance from the Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District. This ordinance would impact water recycling from new car washes in the City. The second issue was a rezoning and concurrent variance to allow for 80 townhomes in Tucker’s Northlake area. Neither of these issues was voted on and both are expected to come up again at the Council’s meeting on June 14.
Earlier in the meeting, Council got an update on several projects happening within Tucker’s Parks and Recreation Department. One project, the status of the dams and potential next steps at Twin Brothers Lakes, is expected to be discussed further at an upcoming meeting.
The Mayor and Council will hold a work session on Monday May 24 at 7 p.m. at City Hall (1975 Lakeside Parkway, Suite 350B).
