City holds first hearing for new annexation fee
Placeholder Image
An amendment to the City of Dawsonville annexation ordinance that will allow the city to charge an additional fee for each property annexing into the city as well as help reduce the number of unincorporated islands was heard in the first of two public hearings by the city council Monday. If approved by council, the city code of ordinances would be amended to include a new chapter that establishes an annexation fee for those wishing to incorporate their property. The fee will be a one-time payment of $250, and is in addition to rezoning fees that the city already charges for properties annexing into the city.
