City Off To Good Start in First Full Year in Operation

The City of Peachtree Corners issued 382 new business licenses and handled 518 code enforcement cases in 2013.

City Off To Good Start in First Full Year in Operation
With a full year operating as a city, the City of Peachtree Corners Community Development Director Diana Wheeler has released some interesting stats on how the city's first full year stacks up.

"Not all of the city's services were fully in place throughout the year," stated Wheeler in her report to City Council. "Code enforcement, for example was not fully staffed until August, and the city's new trash collection service had not been implemented by year end."

However, there is still 12 months of data collected to use as a base line to use as comparison for future reports.
