Mayor & Council Decide On Sewer Service Issues

From the City of Milton.

During the September 15th regular City Council Meeting, the Mayor and City Council carefully reviewed an analysis and recommendations made by Milton's Community Development department in regard to a proposed Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) and revised City of Milton Sewer Service Area Map prepared by Fulton County. After much discussion, Mayor and Council voted to accept all of Staff's recommendations except to allow property in the Crabapple Plan shown as eligible for sewer to remain sewer service accessible.

"I am excited that Council and I have made a decision on sewer and am ready to move forward," said Mayor Joe Lockwood. "I believe we have decided on a solution that is in the best interest of the City, and which will have no negative impact on future density issues." Mayor Lockwood adds, "This was a difficult decision for Council to reach a consensus on, and I appreciate the time that the Council members and the Staff have put into bringing us to this point."

The Adopted Sewer Service Area map shows 84% of the City to remain unsewered (20,862.8 acres), 3% Little River (795.6 acres) and 13% Big Creek Services Area (3,280.5 acres). "Staff and I reviewed these properties parcel by parcel, and land lot by land lot, and presented to Mayor and Council what we believed to be best for our City," said Alice Wakefield. "I am pleased with their decision."
