Lilburn council hires company to do review on updating regulations

LILBURN -- The Lilburn City Council decided Monday night to bring its 1986 Zoning Resolution into the 21st century by hiring a company to do an independent review on updating its regulations.

Low-bidder Robert and Company, in business since 1917, will perform the work, which is scheduled to take about four months, and cost no more than $40,900, funds to be paid from the Capital Projects Fund.

"They (Robert and Company) will go through the nuts and bolts of the zoning regulations," Councilman Tim Dunn said. "They will bring the regulations up to date in agreement with federal law."

The council also approved amendments to the fiscal year budget for 2010-11 to include expenses for the ongoing Lilburn Farmers' Market. The Market has reportedly been generating its own revenue, and Councilman Johnny Crist said it should be "a wash" for its expenses. In addition, the Market, which is held each Friday night during the summer behind the City Municipal Complex, will be the site on Friday for the recently rained-out Lilburn Idol activities.

In other business, the council:

* Approved the application of Mevludin Alimanovic for an alcohol license for the on-premises consumption for the sale of beer, wine and distilled spirits at the Imperial Banquet Hall, 4800 Lawrenceville Highway, Suite Y-1. As a contingency to the application, the company must sign a current lease to be presented to the city clerk within 30 days or the license will be voided.
