Fulton County transportation improvements closer with agreement

Fulton County leaders are in agreement that something needs to be done about transportation.

The support for the measure increases the likelihood that it will be on the ballot for voters to approve in November.

Alpharetta Mayor David Belle Isle praised the opportunity to let residents decide if they wanted to spend money to fix “what’s bleeding right now.”
