Council to Consider BYOB Ordinance, Agreements With County For Fire, Police, Other Services

Also on the agenda is a presentation the city's responsibilities in managing future municipal elections.

The Peachtree Corners City Council will meet Tuesday, Dec. 17, at 7 p.m. to decide on a number of items including an ordinance to amend the alcoholic beverage code.

The council will consider an amendment to the alcoholic beverage code which will allow individuals to bring in their alcoholic beverages to certain types of retail businesses, including non-dining businesses to "accommodate the consumption of wine and malt beverages on their premises."

At the Dec. 3 Work Session, the council discussed the topic of amending the city's code. Diana Wheeler, the Community Development Director, said there had been interest from some in the business community that don't have a wine, beer or liquor license in changing the code.

Wheeler said the purpose is not to get around licensing but rather would allow businesses such as art galleries, spas, theaters and other businesses that normally would not have a need for a beer and wine or liquor license to allow customers to bring in their own bottle of wine at an event.

City Council will also consider Intergovernmental Agreements (IGA) with Gwinnett County on the following:
  • Fire and Emergency Medical Services
  • Police Services
  • Road Maintenance
  • Road Resurfacing
  • Stormwater Services
The IGA are required so the county can continue providing the services to the city.

Also on the agenda will be a presentation from elections consultant, Gary Smith, will talk about what the city needs to do to hold elections. Beginning in 2014, the City of Peachtree Corners will be responsible for all city election.
