Mayor and Council adopted the City Budget on final reading, June 18, 2019. The adopted Budget for FY 2019-20 is based on a recommended rate of 16.11 mills, unchanged from 2018.

MARTA would like to buy the AT&T decks on their property near the Doraville station.

The City is taking steps to add more vigilance at key intersections and entry points. Hapeville has been testing three cameras since July 2018. We have seen positive information and are ready to implement more into the City plan for monitoring. With the City neighboring Hartsfield Jackson and the high incidence of auto break ins, thefts and human trafficking, the cameras will increase our ability to give the Police Department real-time data on vehicles coming through key areas.
Staff requests council approval to contract with Flock Safety for cameras at 12 intersections, 24 cameras in total, $2000 per unit per year, for 2 years.
Councilman Adams will initiate a discussion on the needed speed tables as a response to complaints and concerns for residents as it relates to speeders, and requests for calming measures. Refer to the attached document for signage request.
