As a resident and property owner of the new City of Peachtree Corners, I was shocked to see a budget that was three times larger than initially proposed. The latest proposal is $2.7 million, when thought to be originally $760,917.
The city leaders touted there would only be three services: land planning and zoning, code enforcement and trash collection.
These are the same leaders that are now saying we must include more services. The question is how and who will fund this new huge budget? And can you see more taxes - or "franchise fees" - coming our way to pay for this “City Hall Sprawl.” These new issues are important for all of us to follow.
As a fellow taxpayer, I feel your pain. The original vision of Peachtree Corners was to be a city with limited services, a "city lite." I believe this is not what the voters of the city signed onto and agreed upon. Otherwise, we will be right back where we started.
