The Proposed City of South Fulton, GA
The 2013 Georgia General Assembly session ended in April with a gaggle of legislation that specifically targeted the Fulton County Government TO STOP PROVIDING CITY SERVICES TO UNINCORPORATED SOUTH FULTON. The New City of South Fulton would be the 4th largest City in Fulton County with close to 90,000 residents and 9th largest in the State. Approximately $16 million dollars in new revenue would be available from the County Local Option Sales tax pool improving the City’s financial viability.There will be a full-time mayor and 7 district council members with one Council President at large. Taxes will not go up because the new City is formed. For more information, contact Benny Crane, Chairman for Unified South Fulton, Inc. at southfultonunited@live.
