Senoia Council holds hearing on garage

by Alex McRae

A public hearing regarding the size of an attached garage at 78 Turin St. in Senoia was among business at this week’s meeting of the Senoia Mayor and Council.

A motion was made to approve construction of the garage — which includes upstairs space — with the condition that the upstairs area never be used as a living space. The motion passed.

In other business:

• Mayor Robert Belisle made a motion to move forward with the proposal from Coweta County to resurface parts of Luther Bailey Road and stripe Rockaway Road. The motion carried unanimously.

• The owner of Big Jim’s Wing Shack had earlier approached the city about tying onto city sewer lines, but found that option too expensive. The owner of the property said in the absence of sanitary sewer, his best option was to build a new septic system.

He asked if the city would write a letter to Coweta County stating that sewer service was not available and asking the Coweta County Health Department to issue a permit to install a new septic system meeting all applicable regulations.

It was unanimously agreed that the letter would be sent to the county.

• The mayor and council also agreed to close a short section of Johnson Street from 5 - 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 21 to accommodate a wedding. The residents requesting the closing presented council with signatures from neighbors indicating they had no objection.

Mayor Belisle asked if the impact would be directly in front of the house and was told yes. It was agreed that emergency vehicles would have access during this time if needed and Police Chief Edens will notify Coweta Fire and EMS of the closing.

The request was unanimously approved.
