GRAYSON -- The Grayson City Council decided Monday night to delay until November any action on an ordinance which would require registration of vacant property in the city.
"This matches Lawrenceville's ordinance, but it might be more of a headache than a positive thing," Mayor Jim Hinkle said."Right now, however, there's no way to contact a resident who vacates the premises.
"The problem is getting them registered.Who do you contact if you have a problem with the property?"
The matter was tabled until the Nov. 19 council meeting.
In other business, the Council:
-- Approved a Local Maintenance Improvement Grant contract with the Georgia Department of Transportation for $20,000 to pave a 1-mile stretch of Brandon Boulevard.The city will have to accept bids to complete the project, which will begin in January.
-- Named Eddie Russell to the vacancy on the Downtown Development Authority. Russell earlier had served on the authority.
-- OK'd the Solid Waste Ordinance/Agreement with the stipulation of adding a penalty fee for non-compliance.
-- Adopted a request for proposal for the city's security patrol contract.
-- Adopted a resolution approving the Energy Excise Tax intergovernmental agreement with Gwinnett County.
-- Announced that the Veteran's Day Service will be held Nov. 10 at Grayson United Methodist Church.
