City Council Actions from April 5, 2018

At their meeting on Thursday, April 5, the City Council took the following actions:

  • Mayor Fleisch issued Proclamation for Safe Digging Month (Please remember to call 811 for utility locates before digging).
  • Mayor Fleisch Proclaimed Alcohol Awareness Month (Reminder: All of Fayette County has a Social Hosting Law that can fine or jail parents who allow under-age drinking at parties in their homes).
  • Council approved the Consent Agenda (a budget amendment of $75,000 from Capital Improvements to the General Fund for Building Repair & Maintenance, and awarding the bid for the Special GDOT Coating for Lake Kedron Bridge pilings and sway bracing to JHC Corporation for $92,000 – Note:  This is why Lake Kedron is being further lowered)
  • Council unanimously denied a proposed amendment to the Zoning Ordinance to address house color requirements, but will continue the discussion about what ordinances may be necessary to allow the City to address expiring neighborhood covenants. 
  • Council unanimously denied a request to place a private sewer line in the public right-of-way for 114 Hilltop Drive.

Staff briefed Council on several items:

  • Staff will be bringing forward an ordinance amendment to prohibit parking on the west side of Echo Court to ensure public safety vehicles can navigate the roadway during large events.
  • Staff will be bringing forward an ordinance amendment to enlarge the tree sizes for classification as Specimen Trees and for requiring a Tree Removal Permit, but will continue discussions regarding the sizes (Council requested that the sizes be smaller than those proposed at the meeting). 
  • Staff expects that construction on the Glenloch Splash Pad (SPLOST Project #36) can begin this fall after the pool closes for the 2018 summer season.
  • Peachtree City’s IT Department reported on the IT Security measures they employ to prevent issues like those recently experienced by Atlanta.  The measures include layers of defense, filtering systems, physical security measures at servers and facilities, multiple backups, and ongoing review of system and threats.

COMMUNITY NEWS

April is Safe Digging Month – Call 8-1-1 Before You Dig

Are you planning a landscaping project this year?  Installing a fence or mailbox?  Building a deck, pool, or patio?  An underground utility line is damaged once every nine minutes nationwide because someone decided to dig without first calling 811.  The service is free, and helps to prevent unintended contact with phone and cable TV lines (an inconvenience), water and sewer lines (a potential mess), and gas and electric lines (which can prove fatal).  Please don’t put yourself and your community at risk - call 811 a few days before getting started on your project.  For more information, visit www.call811.com


Local Citizens & Auxiliary Planning Police Appreciation Week in May

Police Week is May 13 – 19 this year, and local residents are working in conjunction with the volunteer Peachtree City Police Auxiliary to show appreciation to our local department.  On Thursday & Friday, May 17 and 18, there will be a celebration covering all shifts of the department during which a variety of special surprises are being planned.  Donations from PTC businesses and residents are welcome.  If you wish to donate, please make checks payable to the Peachtree City Police Auxiliary, 350 Hwy 74 S, Peachtree City, GA 30269 (Please include “Police Appreciation” on the memo line -- Contributions of $50 or more will receive a tax exempt letter for tax filing).  If you have questions, please email Marianne at sheeple53@aol.com.

The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) has informed the City that they will begin the repaving of Highway 54 between Peachtree City and Fayetteville during the second week of April (April 9).  The project will begin at both ends, and will start in Peachtree City on Highway 54 West.  Milling and paving work will take place primarily at night to reduce the impact on traffic flow.

  • MacDuff Parkway/Hwy 54 (SPLOST Project #5) – Construction continues (new equipment, detection system, signal heads).

Both projects must be completed before GDOT will grant approval for opening the new turn lanes. 


Lake Peachtree Spillway Replacement Continues through June 2018

As of March 15, the project was behind schedule by 3-4 weeks due to the full week of freezing temperatures in January.  This has moved the “substantial completion” estimate (when the lake can begin to completely refill) to late June. The contractor is working extended workdays and weekends hoping to regain a week or more.  The expected completion of the foundation, when the lake level can be raised by two additional feet, is now late April.  View Mr. Davis’ March 15 presentation at http://www.peachtree-city.org/DocumentCenter/View/11023

  • Path Detour in effect – NO TRESPASSING!! The spillway construction zone path detour area is a “No Trespassing” zone and will be enforced. The map at http://www.peachtree-city.org/DocumentCenter/View/10447 shows the alternate routes path users will take until the spillway construction zone is cleared.  Automobile drivers on Fishers Luck are asked to use extra caution and reduce speed in the coming months due to the carts sharing roadway.
  • DO NOT DRIVE ON Lake Bed – Please keep cars and golf carts off the lake bed.  They sink in the mud (proven two more times last week).
