Later this year, the City of Dacula will begin collecting a 4 percent natural gas franchise fee from the City of Buford.
On April 3, the Dacula City Council approved a 10-year agreement with the City of Buford which, for the first time since Buford began providing gas services to Dacula in 1954, will include the fee payment.
Wilbanks explained the city charter outlines several situations in which a council member may be removed from office. Those reasons include, but are not limited to, conviction of a crime involving moral turpitude, malfeasance, misfeasance, incompetence and abandonment of office. In the event Reeves resigns or is removed from office, the charter allows city leaders to appoint someone to fill the position until the next election.
In other business during Thursday night's meeting, the council approved an agreement between the City of Dacula and Republic Services of Georgia for curbside recycling which would lock in the present rate for two years and authorized the expenditure of $11,250 to Municode to codify the city's ordinances. The council also met in executive session and adopted a $27,500 SPLOST-funded addition to the Hill Circle repaving project to allow for the construction of a cul-de-sac on South Street and the purchase of the property necessary for the project.
