Tucker’s Mayor and City Council had a busy month of June. At their meeting on June 8, they voted unanimously to adopt a balanced budget for Fiscal Year ’21. The $14 million budget was created with a forecast 20 percent drop in revenue as a result of the impact of coronavirus on Tucker businesses.
At that meeting, they also unanimously passed a resolution on Social Injustice, urging the Georgia legislature and leaders in Congress to pass hate crimes legislation.
On June 22, Council voted unanimously to approve an annexation petition by neighbors in the Hughes Pointe subdivision. The neighborhood, which sits on the west side of Chamblee Tucker Road just north of Livsey Elementary School, brings 35 new parcels into the City. Council took action on several additional items, including:
- Approving a special land use permit (SLUP) for minor auto repair at 3145 Tucker Norcross Road.
- Adopting an ordinance to amend the City Code, strengthening the regulations pertaining to disorderly conduct.
- Approving a contract for construction of a bridge on the red trail at Henderson Park. That contract is with JOC Construction for $30,736.
- Approving a contract for construction of a second dock on Henderson Park’s Lake Erin. That contract is with JOC Construction for $50,060.
- Approving contracts with city service providers Jacobs and InterDev.
Prior to the meeting, Council was busy, holding a pair of public hearings (11:00 a.m. and 6:45 p.m.) on the proposed millage rate, as well as a work session to discuss public works in the City.
The next City Council meeting will be July 13 at 7 p.m. at the City Hall Annex (4228 First Avenue).
