Senoia to consider adopting county animal ordinance

After lengthy discussions during the past two meetings the Senoia City Council on Monday voted unanimously to begin the process of scheduling public hearings that could lead to the adoption of Coweta County’s Animal Control Ordinance.

But the discussion quickly led to the idea of comparing the city and county ordinance and determining which would best suit the needs of Senoia’s citizens. Read More»

Haddix: Watch for more taxes in survey

Peachtree City Mayor Don Haddix

Again this year, the annual survey of city residents will include a host of questions about property taxes and what services/programs citizens support the most.

Mayor Don Haddix said this week that he is concerned the survey isn’t specific enough, particularly when it comes to explaining the issue with property taxes. He noted that when last year’s 1.25 mill property tax increase was approved, city staff projected a subsequent .5 mill hike necessary for this year and each of the following three years. Read More»

PTC to consider gas cart ban Thursday night

Thursday night the Peachtree City Council will consider a proposal to ban the registration of gas-powered golf carts, although existing gas cart owners will have 10 years before facing the same consequence, thereby rendering their carts unusable on the city’s 80-plus mile cart path system.

The gas golf cart ban has been applauded by residents who contend they are too smelly and noisy. But opponents have contended that the carts are a better alternative to electric-powered models since they have more range per tank compared to the electric cart’s built-in battery power. Read More»

PTC looks at 1-way road solution

County wants to pave road that would link to Kedron Hills subdivision

The Peachtree City Council has once again postponed a decision on whether or not it agrees with Fayette County paving Sims Road, which links directly to Astoria Lane in the Kedron Hills subdivision.

The road is in the unincorporated county, and some city residents are concerned that the road might create a shortcut sending vehicles through the neighborhood.

Other positives, however, are a more reliable shortcut to Piedmont Fayette Hospital for ambulances, and also a paved road for a school bus route going to Bennett’s Mill Middle School. Read More»
