Toccoa City Commission To Meet Today

A number of items are on the agenda for today’s Toccoa City Commission meeting.

City Commissioners are set to meet at 5 p.m. today at Toccoa City Hall.

During today’s meeting, the commission is expected to consider the city’s utilities delinquency policy.

At an October 29 work session, the city commissioners discussed proposed changes to the policy, including increasing the amount required for a deposit for a new customer and shortening the amount of time before a customer becomes delinquent on his or her account.

In addition, city commissioners are expected to continue consideration of compressed natural gas test.

At the October 29 work session, Toccoa City Manager Mike Jackson has proposed spending $54,800 to put in the necessary fueling equipment and convert five city vehicles to have the ability to run off of natural gas.

Jackson said this would serve as a trial run to see if it works in saving fuel costs, adding that if it does, he would like to consider expanding the effort down the road.

Other items on the agenda include consideration of bid award for repairs to the Davidson Creek Reservoir Pump Station, consideration of approval of Toccoa-Stephens County Infrastructure Improvement Plan design consultant, consideration of a real property agreement between the Georgia Department of Transportation and the city for Phase Six Streetscape work, the monthly financial report, and consideration of a number of alcohol beverage control licenses.

Today’s meeting is open to the public.
