Alpharetta City Council Leaving Georgia to Meet Sunday, Monday

It's time for the City Council's annual retreat, and they are headed north to Chattanooga this year.

These parking places on the "back" side of Alpharetta City Hall will be empty Sunday and Monday night, because City Council won't be meeting here – they will be in Chattanooga.

Alpharetta City Council will hold its annual retreat on Sunday night and all day Monday, and you can attend. That is, you can attend if you have time to drive up to Chattanooga, TN.

It's common practice for city councils – including Alpharetta's – to hold retreats away from City Hall. The practice is supposed to get them away from all of the distractions of the daily grind at City Hall, their homes and their jobs. However, it does make it difficult for city residents to attend the public meetings. And generally they are not video streamed online as those held in City Hall would be.

The City Council retreat will be held at the Sheraton Read House, 827 Broad St., Chattanooga, TN 37402.

The retreat will have a two-hour session on Sunday starting at 6 p.m. It will resume on Monday at 8:30 a.m., with adjournment expected by 6 p.m.
