DAHLONEGA, Ga. – The election of a mayor pro tempore, appointment of an ethics board and the establishment of special event permit fees in the city will be among the items to be decided at a meeting of the Dahlonega City Council Monday, Feb. 5, at 6 p.m.

Special event permit fees to be considered include permit application fee ($300), refundable damage deposit ($500). Additional fees may be charged for the use of water and electricity at the Hancock Park Pavilion as well as an hourly fee for city employees who assist in coordination of special events.

Council will consider a repurposing of the 2020 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) and is expected to take action to call an election on May 22 for the purpose of submitting to the voters of the county for their approval of the SPLOST to commence on April 1, 2020.

State law requires that prior to the voter referendum, municipal projects be authorized through intergovernmental contracts with the country.

Other items to be considered include:

  • A declaration of Official Intent to Reimburse Costs of Acquiring Equipment with Tax Exempt Financing;
  • An amendment to the resolution regarding employment contracts for department heads;
  • A joint city/county proclamation recognizing and honoring Brian Denney for his service as chairman of the Dahlonega-Lumpkin County Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau;
