Property owners along a portion of Canton Street in Alpharetta north of the Alpharetta Library will have to pay for the expansion of sewer service if a proposal by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners is approved.

The proposed expansion would begin just west of 248 Canton Street, according to a release from the city of Alpharetta, cross under the street, and extend approximately 50 linear feet northward.  The total proposed expansion is approximately 390 linear feet.

The county will hold a public hearing on the sewer service expansion proposal, but property owners will have to go to Atlanta to participate.

Fulton Public Hearing
Wednesday, Dec. 4, 10 a.m.
Fulton County Government Center
Assembly Hall
141 Pryor St., Atlanta

A public notice from Fulton County says the expansion cost will be chargd to property owners abutting the expansion at a rate of $20 for every foot their properties front the roadway. Payment would be due within 150 days of construction completion.

If a property owner wants to connect to that sewer line – the public wastewater system operated by Fulton County – that's just the start of costs. The county will charge $3,613 plus a monthly wastewater utilization charge for each resident who connects to the system. And property owners would be responsible for connecting their homes with the new wastewater line, adding to the costs.

Any property owner affected by this proposal or any other interested parties are encouraged to attend the Dec. 4 hearing to offer comments to the Fulton County Commission

For additional information, contact the Fulton County Department of Water Resources; specifically Wilford White at 404-612-7509 or Ray Wooten at 404-612-7547.

Looks like your second to last paragraph was cut-off above.

Thanks for the catch. It's fixed now, and was an encouragement for local residents to speak at the public hearing on Dec. 4.

What's the purpose of the expansion if none of the property owners are requesting it?
