ZONING REWRITE HEARINGS
The City of South Fulton is overhauling its Zoning laws, which govern everything from what kinds of businesses are allowed in what areas of our city to what kinds of materials must be used in the construction of homes or commercial storefronts.

CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS
November & December Regular Meeting Schedule
Work Session & Regular Meeting Combined
Tuesday, November 10 • 10AM
Tuesday, December 9 • 10AM
Work Sessions usually occur the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Work Sessions will not run longer than three hours, from 4PM to 7PM. City Council does not vote in Work Sessions, but uses them to discuss complex issues in deep detail.
Regular Meetings is where voting occurs. These meetings are usually held the 4th Tuesday of each month at 10AM. As is the case with many traditional government bodies, the most contentious topics are placed at the end of the agenda. Regular meetings currently have no set end-time. They begin with Proclamations, Zoning Hearings and Public Comment (this is where citizens can send in or deliver questions & comments directly to City Council). Historically, Council Meetings of this nature last about 6-8 hours.
Daytime meetings were proposed to accommodate daytime work hours of city staff, architects & lawyers for developers (who attend Zoning Hearings) as well as Senior residents.
Emergency and Special Called Meetings may be called by the Mayor alone, or a quorum (majority) of City Council Members at any time as long as 48 hours notice is provided.

SOUTH FULTON'S 2021 BUDGET
A primary responsibility of every level of government — from Congress to your local City Council — is passing a Budget. The City Budget determines how tax dollars collected by the city are spent. The Calendar by which governments (and businesses) spend money is known as the Budget Year or Fiscal Year (FY).
The City of South Fulton's Fiscal Year begins each October 1 (just like a school calendar, where the 2021 School Year begins in Fall 2020).
The Federal Government's Fiscal Year also beings October 1.
The Fiscal Year for Fulton County begins January 1.
The Fiscal Year for Fulton County Schools begins July 1.
The Fiscal Year for the State of Georgia begins July 1.
After holding several Public Hearings to get citizen feedback on the 2021 Budget, South Fulton's City Council will make final decisions on the budget at a Special Council Meeting this Tuesday.
Our 2021 Complete Budget is nearly $110 Million, including T-SPLOST, federal grants and special funds. Learn more on our Budget Page at the link below.
