ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- The Fulton County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on a proposal to expand sewer service along a portion of Canton Street in Alpharetta and charge property owners along the expansion route for the costs. The hearing will be held Dec. 4 beginning at 10 a.m. in the Assembly Hall of the Fulton County Government Center, located at 141 Pryor Street in Atlanta.

The proposed expansion would begin just west of 248 Canton St., cross under the street, and extend approximately 50 linear feet northward. The total proposed expansion is approximately 390 linear feet.

According to a public notice issued by the county, the cost of the expansion will be charged to owners of properties abutting the expansion at a rate of $20 for every foot that their respective properties front the roadway. Payment would be due within 150 days following completion of construction.

Property owners desiring to connect to the public wastewater system after construction must also pay a sewer connection permit fee of $3,613 and a monthly wastewater utilization charge collected from each resident that connects to the system. Property owners would also be responsible for the connection of the residence to the wastewater line.

Any property owner affected by this proposal or any other interested parties are encouraged to attend the Dec. 4 hearing to offer comments to the Fulton County Commission.

Those seeking additional information should contact the Fulton County Department of Water Resources; specifically Wilford White at 404-612-7509 or Ray Wooten at 404-612-7547.
