Tucker’s City Council used the month of February to address some existing business in the City, as well as to look ahead to the future.
On February 6, Council held a work session, where they got an update on the preliminary survey results from the Tucker Tomorrow Comprehensive Plan.
They also talked with staff on a 90-day work plan. This work plan addresses some of Council’s top short-term priorities, including coordinating with DeKalb County on intergovernmental agreements (IGAs), moving forward on the buildout of a City Hall annex on 1st Avenue and developing an emergency plan in conjunction with county officials.
At their regularly scheduled meeting held on February 13, they approved a contract with Lowe Engineering to conduct a study on Tucker’s parks. They also voted 6-0 to give final approval for Mt. Moriah Baptist Church to build a 14,500-square foot family life center at their property on Brockett Road.
Council finished out the month with a public information session on Comcast internet service. It was organized by the mayor and Council in response to numerous complaints from the community about the cost and reliability of the service that Comcast is providing.
The next regularly scheduled City Council meeting will be held on Monday March 13th.
