Alpharetta City Council Meeting Agenda for October 19, 2015

Below is the agenda for Monday night’s Alpharetta City Council meeting along with highlighted links to many of the supporting materials. Please feel free to leave questions and comments about agenda items in the comment section of this page.

While this may seem like an uninteresting slate of topics I encourage readers to pay specific attention to the materials accompanying the Capital Project Financing workshop. These materials reflect preliminary discussions taking place about the possibility of addressing current infrastructure needs through a general obligation bond which would be approved by the voters of Alpharetta.

This is an important discussion for the future of our community so I hope our residents will make the time to participate in this public process.
