Communication a big goal of PTC assessment group

The needs assessment committee established by Peachtree City Mayor Don Haddix continued Thursday to make progress on laying the groundwork for its future activities.

One of the bigger goals established by the committee is to create an avenue to both share information with citizens and also solicit input from the community.

The committee is charged with considering all services provided by the city and recommending appropriate funding levels to continue providing those services.

Committee member Josh Bloom suggested it was important to provide fair information to the citizens so they will be able to make an informed decision on a variety of topics.

The group on Thursday adopted its mission statement: to “determine citizen priorities for city services and to recommend a millage rate in context of all city revenue using objective methods.”

The committee will meet again next Thursday at 11:30 a.m. at City Hall with the hopes of getting a financial overview from city Finance Director Paul Salvatore. If Salvatore is not available for some reason the committee has contingency plans.

Talking about city revenue at Thursday’s meeting, there was some discussion about focusing the group’s efforts solely on the property tax (millage) rate. The overriding opinion, however, was that all other revenue should be under consideration including sales taxes, fines and service fees for tasks such as building inspections and the like.

The committee was appointed by Mayor Don Haddix at the urging of his fellow council members. Haddix has long contended that a review of city services has the possibility to create long-lasting budget cuts.
