Here are the highlights from the Lilburn City Council meeting held Monday, December 9:
Councilmember Tim Dunn was not in attendance.
City Council approved an agreement in regards to
installation of water lines on Main Street as part of the realignment project
by a vote of 3-0. The water line system is being upgraded to include the
increasing the current 8” pipe to a 12” ductile iron water main.
Gwinnett County will pay the City of Lilburn $38,235.75, the direct upsizing
costs associated with approximately 1,833 linear feet of the 12” water main.
The project is expected to begin in four to six weeks.
Council approved utility relocation by Georgia
Power for the Main Street realignment project. There were two separate
agreements approved in the amounts of $109,759 and $22,081. With the
relocation, there will be no visible power lines on the new Main Street from
Highway 29 to the first roundabout. The measure passed 3-1. Councilmember Thomas
Wight opposed, and with Tim Dunn absent, Mayor Crist voted in favor, because
three votes are necessary to approve an action according to the city charter.
Council updated the Five Year Short Term Work
Program as required by state law and amended the City of Lilburn 2030
Comprehensive Plan. This passed unanimously.
In a 3-0 vote, council approved a hold harmless
agreement with Lilburn resident Hugh Wilkerson, who owns Antiques in Old Town.
Wilkerson received a building permit to allow the construction of a structure
on City of Lilburn Right-of-Way at 93 Main Street. The hold harmless agreement
allows for installation subject to certain requirements.
· Council tabled the creation of a nonprofit arts association which would be able to apply for arts grants on behalf of the city.
