Moratorium extended by McDonough council

The McDonough City Council voted at its June 15 regular meeting to extend to Aug. 1 the city’s moratorium on approval of new development that would connect to the city’s water system.

Also approved was a resolution to begin the process of changing the zoning ordinance so that a maximum of eight units per acre is put in place for multifamily residential development. A $568,840.04 contract for maintenance on various streets was awarded to Piedmont Paving and $270,712.10 will come from the city’s Local Maintenance and Improvement Grant (LMIG) with the balance of the funding provided by SPLOST revenue.

The council also approved a memorandum of understanding with the Georgia Department of Community Affairs to keep the city’s Main Street program in compliance.
