Avondale Estates Files a Bill!

Avondale Estates Proposed Annexations.

On March 7, 2014, the City of Avondale Estates filed an annexation bill in the General Assembly. House Bill 1130 was sponsored by Representatives Karla Drenner (D), 85th, Michele Henson (D), 86th, Scott Holcom (D), 81st, Mike Jacobs (D), 80th, and Karen Bennett (D), 94th.

The areas proposed to be annexed were described by text in the body of the bill  These areas included residential areas to the southwest, and light industrial areas to the north, specifically including Your DeKalb Farmers Market.

Both the bill, HB 1130, and a map illustrating the proposed annexation can be found after the break.

UPDATE March 24, 2014:

HB 1130 was approved by the House, unanimously in a vote for all pending bills of local legislation, on March 11, 2014. For whatever reason, the bill failed to pass through committee in the Senate and was therefore Not Approved.
