Peachtree City UPDATES
Week of June 19, 2017

 

HOT ISSUES

Budget Workshops Begin Next Monday

The Peachtree City Mayor and Council will hold a workshop on Monday, June 26, 6:30 p.m., at City Hall to discuss the FY 2018 Budget.  The public is welcome.  If necessary, the workshop will be continued on Tuesday, June 27, at 6:30 p.m. 



Parade Safety Reminder – Keep Little Ones Behind the Curb!

With the 4th of July festivities approaching, it is a good time to plan your parade strategy.  How will you keep your little parade watchers safe? Drivers of decorated floats and vehicles have limited visibility and cannot see small children who may dart out into the parade lane to retrieve candy that may not have made it to the curb.  Last year, one resident saw a tire come within inches of a child’s hand before the she was pulled back to the edge of the roadway.  Even a second’s inattention can have tragic consequences.  Consider keeping your smallest spectators safe behind the curb by keeping them in a stroller, wagon, or on the seat of the golf cart as the parade goes by.  Bring a bag so they can hold the goodies you collect for them!  Let’s all stay safe and enjoy this wonderful holiday. 


Tune in Wednesday to watch Local Team on Gordon Ramsey’s “The F-Word”

In this case, the “F” is for the teams of family and friends having fun competing live each week.  Gordon Ramsey’s new cooking show will air live on Wednesday, June 21, with a team from the Peachtree City Police Department.  Team “Slaw & Order” is made up of Assistant Chief Stan Pye, Lt. Mark Brown, Det. Heather Scott, and K-9 Officer Justin Mobley.  Tune in to Fox 5 at 9:00 PM Wednesday to watch. 


Reminder:  Public Safety Training on Robinson Rd Tomorrow

Peachtree City’s Fire and Police Departments will be conducting a training exercise at 424 Robinson Road on the evening of Tuesday, June 20.  Demolition of the house will begin on Wednesday, June 21 (weather permitting).




COMMUNITY NEWS


B at the Movies Presents: The Secret Life of Pets this Saturday!

On June 24, B98.5 will host “B at the Movies” at Glenloch Recreation Center on Stevens Entry. Activities begin at 7:30 p.m., with the movie starting at dusk. This year's feature film is The Secret Life of Pets, and leashed pets are welcome! The GA Heartland Humane Society will also be on hand with adoptable dogs. We can't wait to see you and your furry friends there! Spread the word!



Think Green:  Conserve Water with Rain Barrels

Rain barrels not only benefit the environment -- they have household benefits as well.  By capturing and storing the stormwater runoff generated by our roofs, homeowners can reduce the erosion and soil loss commonly found near gutter downspouts.  Storing the stormwater runoff generated by rainfall falling on a hot roof can also reduce thermal stormwater pollution by allowing the runoff to cool before it reaches a stream or lake.  Rain barrels can also help to reduce a home owner’s water bill by providing a natural source of water to use for watering landscaping and gardens. Some rain barrel systems are capable of providing enough water to wash vehicles.  By installing rain barrels, a home owner may also be eligible for a stormwater utility bill credit.  Learn more at http://www.peachtree-city.org/index.aspx?NID=551.



Peachtree City Celebrating Independence Day on Tuesday, July 4

This Independence Day, Peachtree City will once again invite residents to attend all of our festive events! Tuesday morning, July 4, will begin bright and early with the traditional Independence Day Parade at 9:00 a.m. Local businesses, individuals, and organizations will put on a show for the community, and all are welcome to line the parade route on Peachtree Parkway South.  As in previous years, the parade will begin in the area of Village on the Green and proceed north on Peachtree Parkway, crossing Crosstown, and turning west on McIntosh Trail to end at Shakerag Knoll and Huddleston Elementary School.


The Recreation & Special Events Department is also bringing back 4th Fest at City Hall Plaza this year, sponsored by Webb & Taylor, LLC. Just like in 2014, there will be a family-friendly event from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m.  Acoustic jam band, Cougar Love, will take the stage for some live music from 5:00 - 6:30 p.m., and Final Answer Band will cover hits of the 70s and 80s from 7:00 - 8:45 p.m.  Other activities for celebrants of all ages include face painting, caricature drawings, inflatables, a photo booth, and more.  Some of the best food vendors in the state will also be present, so make sure to bring your appetite.  Special thanks to our many sponsors, including Presenting Sponsor, Webb & Taylor, LLC, and Pike Nurseries.


After the Fest wraps up, we will see you for the fireworks beginning at dusk over Lake Peachtree!
