Mayor and City Council held their first meeting of the month of February on Tuesday night, casting a vote on the highly anticipated special land use permit (SLUP) for Chick-fil-A. The restaurant chain, which is seeking to move its Tucker Station location to the site of the old The Greater Good BBQ on Hugh Howell Road, asked for a deferral of their petition so that they could make major changes to the plans. Council voted 6-0 to grant a deferral to their next meeting on February 28.
Council also cast several votes in the areas of transportation and Parks and Recreation. Those included:
- approval of a contract with Allied Paving Contractors for just over $3 million for resurfacing work on 61 streets throughout the City.
- approval of a contract with Blount Construction for $547,492.18 for full depth reclamation and resurfacing of the Ivey Oaks subdivision.
- approval of a task order with BM&K for $119,980 for construction engineering and inspection services to oversee the quality of the resurfacing work.
- approval of a contract with Hasbun Construction for just over $1.1 million for construction of a trail segment through downtown Tucker.
- approval of a contract with Helix Group for $583,355.55 for improvements to the water and sewer system at Fitzgerald Park.
- approval of a task order with Barge Design Solutions for $49,750 for design services on the Tucker Town Green project.
Council’s final action of the night was to approve a holiday and meeting calendar for the remainder of 2022.
The Mayor and City Council will next hold a meeting and work session on Monday February 28 at 7 p.m. at City Hall (1975 Lakeside Parkway, Suite 350B).
