TUCKER, Ga. (June 30, 2016) – On Friday, July 1, the City of Tucker will begin issuing its first official commercial licenses. Business owners are welcome to apply for the licenses from the new city. Tucker officials will take photos and celebrate the first official business license application, which is expected to go to Tucker business owner Gerald Carter, of Carter Fiber.
Applications will be accepted at City Hall, located at 4119 Adrian Street, starting at 9 a.m. Business owners wanting to apply for a commercial business license must bring proper documentation to be considered.
“We look forward to taking our next step in making Tucker a fully functioning city,” said Mayor Frank Auman. “And issuing business licenses will bring us one step closer to our goal.”
If businesses have already obtained a 2016 business license from DeKalb County, there is no need to apply for a City of Tucker license. The City will use the County’s business license fee structure until it adopts one of its own.
Voters approved a ballot referendum in November 2015 to declare Tucker, a nearly 125-year-old community, DeKalb County’s newest city. Since the city’s inauguration, council members have worked tirelessly to make sure the city begins on a solid foundation.
On May 23, the City of Tucker selected CH2M to provide municipal services for the newly-formed city. The CH2M team will manage the city’s administration, finance and community development departments. CH2M will perform code enforcement, planning and zoning, and building permitting and inspections. The firm will also handle administrative services, including revenue collection, financial support and general staff support.
