PEACHTREE CORNERS -- The city of Peachtree Corners entered into a franchise fee agreement with Atlanta Gas Light to provide services within the city limits.
However, there are still some unknowns even though the mayor and city council voted to approve the agreement.
Councilman Alex Wright voiced a concern on whether any fees would be added on with the agreement.
"If my Atlanta Gas Light bill was $42 last month as an unincorporated resident, will it still be $42 this month as an incorporated resident?" he asked. "Or, where there be an extra dollar added onto my bill?"
City Manager Julian Jackson wasn't 100 percent positive if they would or not, but imagined it would follow the same format as when the city entered into an agreement with Georgia Power.
"With Georgia Power, there was a 1.9 percent fee added on top of the 1 percent fee when residents were unincorporated," he said. "I imagine the Atlanta Gas Light plan will follow the same format as Georgia Power, but I'm not 100 percent positive."
Even with the missing piece of information, the council still felt comfortable with passing the motion.
The council also accepted a presentation of the city logo and tagline, which will be presented to residents at a later date. The project was completed by Pam Ledbetter of Accent Media for no cost.
"I was a former resident of this area and I wanted to give back," Ledbetter said. "Typically, logos and branding for cities run around $40,000-45,000. The cheapest I saw was the city of Lilburn's, which cost them $31,400."
Accent Media's work is displayed throughout Gwinnett County, including such projects as Leadership Gwinnett, Lake Lanier Islands Resort, and Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation.
In other business, the council transferred the ownership of the city's Website to the city from councilman James Lowe.
"When we first started as a city, everyone was helping out where they could," said Mayor Mike Mason. "James Lowe took ownership of the city's Website, bought the domain and built the site. This is just transferring that ownership over to the city."
The city also approved a proposal to accept QS1 Software as the financial software provider for the city at a rate of $17,480 over three years.
