City's Code Enforcement Officer Sworn In

At Tuesday night's Peachtree Corners City Council meeting Walter Osorio was officially sworn in as the new code enforcement officer, and city leaders announced that the first Comprehensive Plan committee would meet on Wednesday.

Peachtree Corners city leaders took another step forward Tuesday night in its plans to meet its deadline to have the city services up and operational by Feb. 1.

Code Enforcement Officer Walter Osorio was sworn in during Tuesday night's meeting by the city's attorney Bill Riley and the City Council approved four ordinances to adopt building codes, floodplain management, buffer, landscape and tree regulations.

Council also approved regulatory fees for commercial solid waste collection and a resolution to adopt a floodplain damage prevention ordinance and to participate in the national flood insurance program.

While the City Council's work appears to be a bit mundane, it's all part of getting the city set up to operate separately from Gwinnett County.

Diana Wheeler, the city's Community Development Director announced that the 15 members for the Comprehensive Plan committee had been selected and the first meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2013 at City Hall.

The group of 15, made up of Peachtree Corners civic, county and local citizens, are scheduled to meet on a regular basis through August to design a plan which city leaders will use to determine the new city's path for the next two decades.

In anticipation of its Feb. 1 launch of its services to be up and operational, Wheeler announced that all the forms needed for the city to provide those services city services will be "ready for everyone" on Friday.

Those forms will be available in the City Hall lobby.

Mayor Mason then announced that the City Council would be adjourning for executive session to "discuss a land purchase."
