TUCKER, Ga. (May 6, 2019) – Focusing on continued success in economic development and infrastructure, Tucker Mayor Frank Auman will deliver his third State of the City Address on May 10 at 4 p.m. at the City Council Chamber (4228 First Avenue). The speech, which is traditionally made on the eve of the big Tucker Day celebration, will look back on a year when Tucker saw a significant drop in property crime, unprecedented new investments in the parks, and steady growth in the number of businesses choosing to call Tucker home.
“I’ve always said that I see Tucker as a place to ‘live, work, play and pray for your whole life,’” Auman said. “In this past year, we’ve had countless accomplishments to that effect. In the year ahead, I think we’re going to have even bigger things happening in Tucker.”
Founded in 1892, Tucker was incorporated and began City business in 2016 with no additional tax burden to its residents. To those within its borders, Tucker provides Planning and Zoning, Parks and Recreation, and Code Enforcement services, while partnering with DeKalb County on other services like Police, Fire, and Watershed Management.
Frank Auman is Tucker’s only mayor, being elected to a short term in 2016 and then to a full, four-year term in 2018. A small business owner and longtime civic leader, Auman and his wife live in the Smoke Rise community.
