PTC OKs part of county transportation plan, opposes F'ville bypasses

Instead of endorsing the full Fayette County Transportation Plan, the Peachtree City Council instead chose Thursday night to approve solely of the myriad of city projects contained in the plan.

And while the county transportation plan specifically says no transit projects are recommended for Fayette County, council’s resolution of approval also rebukes a 2007 unfunded plan for metro Atlanta that could bring bus and rail transit service to the city. Read More»

Plunkett thanks outgoing PTC manager for straight talk

Peachtree City Manager Bernard McMullen.

PTC aims at unscrupulous pain pill pushers

The Peachtree City Council instituted a one-year ban on “pain management clinics” Thursday night, but officials insisted the effort will only stave off unscrupulous operations notorious for attracting junkies, while allowing similar legitimate businesses to remain in place.

In fact, Peachtree City has already seen one such operation but managed to shut it down about six months ago, Police Chief Skip Clark told council. The scheme attracted patients almost exclusively from outside the city, and in some cases even from outside the state of Georgia, Clark said. Read More»
