Mayor authorizes fee reductions without council approval
Placeholder Image
City council on Monday voted to deny a request from a group of Gold Creek residents that filed applications to annex their property into the city at a reduced annexation fee. Eighteen homeowners in the subdivision asked to be annexed into the city in a letter dated Feb. 10, and prematurely paid an annexation fee of $250 each as opposed to the $500 fee that is outlined in the city ordinances. Dawsonville Mayor James Grogan brought the application before the council on March 6, stating that several other Gold Creek homeowners had been allowed to annex into the city at a reduced fee in the past and that these homeowners wished to do the same.
