                  SUMMARY AND BACKGROUND:  On September 16, 2009 the City of Forest Park was notified by Georgia Department of Natural Resources (Ga. DNR) that certain amendments had been made to the Georgia Erosion and Sedimentation Act of 1975 effective as of July 1, 2009.  As per Georgia Erosion and Sedimentation Act (O.C.G.A. 312-7-8(a) (2)), Local Issuing Authorities (LIA’s) must amend their Ordinances within 12 months of any amendment to the Act.

 

                  Therefore, the deadline for LIA’s to amend their local Erosion and Sedimentation Ordinances to reflect the 2009 and earlier amendment to the Georgia Erosion and Sedimentation Act is July 1, 2010.

 

                  This Ordinance will allow the City of Forest Park to continue its certification as a Local Issuing Authority, which provides for the Department of Planning, Building and Zoning to issue Land Disturbance Permits (LDP’s) in the new construction/development process.

10. Consider an Ordinance by the City Council for the City of Forest Park, Georgia, to authorize the acquisition and purchase of certain real estate in the City for a purchase price of less than the appraised value; to provide for temporary funding of said purchase from the General Fund of the City; to provide for reimbursement to the General Fund from funds received from the “SPLOST” tax in 2009; to provide for severability; to repeal all Ordinances and parts of Ordinances in conflict herewith; to provide an effective date; and for other purposes

                              SUMMARY AND BACKGROUND: Computer equipment maintenance costs have exceeded budget for the Fire Department, due to expenses related to a computer server “crash”. Costs include recovery of data from the server, and computer parts and technician labor to repair the server.     

 

12. Consider a Resolution by the City Council for the City of Forest Park, Georgia, to authorize the Mayor to execute a Second Amendment to the employment Agreement with the City Manager; so as to extend the term of said agreement for two years and to provide for other terms and conditions of employment; as set forth in said Second Amendment which is attached hereto as Exhibit A and incorporated herein by reference; to provide for severability; to repeal all Resolutions and parts of Resolutions in conflict herewith; to provide an effective date; and for other purposes

 

                               SUMMARY AND BACKGROUND:  The contract for the City Manager will expire on 12/31/09.  This Resolution will allow the Mayor to negotiate and extend the existing contract for a two year period.
