 On the Agenda: Atlanta City Council Significant Legislative Items for Monday, April 15

ATLANTA — Members of the Atlanta City Council will vote Monday on a proposal to add an additional member to the Task Force for the Promotion of Public Trust (Legislative Reference No. 19-R-3379). The resolution, which must be approved by the Committee on Council during its Monday meeting before consideration by full Council, is sponsored by Council member Marci Collier Overstreet. If approved, the additional appointee would need to be a former or current legislator in the Georgia General Assembly and be appointed by the mayor.

Additionally, the Council will consider an ordinance to authorize the mayor to enter into a contract with Fulton County to conduct the 2019 Atlanta Board of Education Special Election, and if necessary, to conduct a runoff election (Legislative Reference No. 19-O-1144). This legislation must also be approved by the Committee on Council during its Monday meeting before consideration by full Council. An election date will not be finalized until the full Council votes on the legislation.

The Council will also consider:

• A resolution by the Transportation Committee supporting the Renew Atlanta Infrastructure Bond/TSPLOST Program’s prioritized project list (Legislative Reference No. 19-R-3445)
• An ordinance to authorize the mayor or her designee to accept a donation of an easement from Clark Atlanta University to install a historic marker on the campus to commemorate the Atlanta Student Movement (Legislative Reference No. 19-O-1118)

The Atlanta City Council will convene Monday, April 15 at 1 p.m. in the Council Chamber at Atlanta City Hall, 55 Trinity Avenue SW.
