PH Item No. 1 - Approval of Ordinance No. 2022-581, an ordinance to amend the FY21-22 budget by increasing General Fund revenue by $304,517 and reconciling expenditures across 11 departments; establishing a balanced budget for a new fund, Fund 235, for ARPA;

Since the adoption of the FY21-22 budget in June 2021 (Ordinance No. 2021-565), changes to revenues and appropriations in the General Fund, School Safety Zone Fund, Tax Allocation District Fund, 2017 SPLOST Fund, Capital Projects Fund, and Municipal Court Fund are required to reflect actual revenues and expenditures in FY21-22. Additionally, the city established a new fund to account for revenues and expenditures associated with the American Recovery Plan Act (ARPA) during the fiscal year. When the FY21-22 budget was adopted, no funds were budgeted for ARPA as appropriations were not received by the city until July 19, 2021.

PH Item No. 2 - Approval of zoning application CIC-2022-01 for Change in Conditions to SUP-2014-02.

The site (5054 Lawrenceville Highway) fronts U.S. 29 and is surrounded by commercial and residential zoning. The subject site exists within the U.S. 29 Overlay District and is used in part as an overflow inventory lot for Automax.

The subject property was developed residentially in 1941 and zoned CB prior to 2007; the current owner purchased the parcel and was granted a Special Use Permit with conditions in 2015 to redevelop the back half of the site to expand the auto sales inventory lot (SUP-2014-02).

Applicant seeks to expand its existing auto sales business, located upon the four parcels (R6147 012, R6147 013, R6147 014, and R6147 015). The applicant seeks to develop the front half of the subject parcel (015), to further expand and seeks to amend conditions 1 and 3 associated with SUP-2014-02.

Staff proposes conditions of SUP-2014-02 and SUP-01-06 be further revised and combined into a single set of conditions to apply to the entirety of the four relevant business properties.

PH Item 3 - Approval of zoning application CIC-2022-02 for Change in Conditions to SUP-01-06.

The site (5034 Lawrenceville Highway) fronts U.S. 29 and is surrounded by both Commercial and Residential zoning. The subject site exists within the U.S. 29 Overlay District.

The subject parcel (013) was rezoned from C-1 to C-2 in 1982 to bring a nonconforming use, auto sales, into compliance. In 2006 the property owner applied for a Special Use Permit to allow for two distinct businesses to operate on the site. The SUP was approved with conditions (SUP-01-06).

Applicant seeks to expand its existing auto sales business’ operational hours, located at 5034 Lawrenceville Hwy. The applicant seeks to expand the allowed accessory service & repair hours of their business. The applicant seeks to amend condition 5 associated with SUP-01-06.

Staff proposes conditions of SUP-2014-02 and SUP-01-06 be further revised and combined into a single set of conditions to apply to the entirety of the four relevant business properties.

Agenda Item No. 2 - Approval of Ordinance No. 2022–584, an ordinance to modify Chapter 62, Taxation, of the City of Lilburn City Code of Ordinances by adding Article III, excise tax on rooms, lodging, and accommodations, to provide for an effective date, and for other purposes.

Georgia law regarding hotel motel tax changed in 2021, expanding the definition of “Innkeeper” to include dealers and marketplace facilitators such as Airbnb and VRBO. At this time, there are no hotels inside the city limits; however, there are homes listed with various marketplace facilitators that are being used as short-term rentals. The city will receive hotel motel tax from these marketplace facilitators beginning July 1, 2022, with the adoption of this proposed ordinance. Staff recommends a hotel motel tax rate of 3%.

Agenda Item No. 3 - Approval of Resolution No. 2022-10, a resolution to repeal and replace Section 9 of the City of Lilburn General and Administrative Policies and Procedures Manual pertaining to private events on city property.

Currently, Section 9, Special Events Policy, of the City of Lilburn General and Administrative Policies and Procedures Manual, allows private rental of Lilburn City Park, the bandshell, and Camp Creek Greenway. With the addition of the new Calvin Fitchett pavilion and splash pad, City Council has reconsidered city policy on renting public space for private use as they prefer to city-owned property to be available to the general public. Resolution No. 2022-10 will repeal and replace Section 9 of the Administrative Policies and Procedures Manual with an updated policy for private events on city property. The proposed policy does not allow rental of Lilburn City Park, the bandshell, the Calvin Fitchett pavilion, the splash pad, or the Camp Creek Greenway with only three exceptions: (1) the Gartrell Nash Pavilion by the playground will be available for private rental; (2) co-sponsored events; and (3) 5K run/walk events.
