Tucker, GA (Monday October 23, 2023). Monday was an occasion for two special called meetings in the City of Tucker. The Mayor and Council convened at 4 p.m. for a special called meeting for an executive session for the purposes of real estate, personnel and/or litigation. The executive session adjourned with no action. The 7 p.m. meeting, while typically a work session, was a special called meeting as there were two second reads that required votes.
The first order of business was a presentation by the DeKalb Community Service Board. The DeKalb CSB and the City of Tucker are exploring a partnership to better serve the Tucker community and support the DeKalb County Police Department with the creation of a part-time Community Mental Health Case Manager position. The proposed position would act as a liaison between available resources and those in the community that have been identified as being in crisis.
Following the presentation, the Mayor and Council heard a second read of an ordinance to amend the Tucker Strategic Transportation Plan. Specifically, to address updates as dictated by the 2023 Tucker Tomorrow Comprehensive Plan. The update was passed unanimously. A second read of an amendment to the Tucker Purchasing Policy was next for old business. This policy will establish updated guidelines including procedures for purchases using federal funds and slight adjustments to micro-purchasing threshold from $10,000 to $50,000. The policy was approved with a unanimous vote.
In new business, there was a first read and public hearing to amend the City’s ordinance to update the code regarding adult entertainment. There will be a second read and vote at the first meeting of November.
The meeting was adjourned at 7:45 p.m. and Council will return on November 13, 2023 for the regular scheduled meeting.
The City of Tucker Mayor and Council meet the second and fourth Mondays of each month at Tucker City Hall, 1975 Lakeside Parkway, Suite 350B, Tucker, GA 30084.
