The City of Decatur has approved a one-time only permit for the Alexan to carry out overnight construction at its site near 160 Clairemont and Commerce Dr. The developer is in the process of relocating an 8” public water main located on Montgomery St. In order to abandon the existing water line and transfer to the new line, water will need to be turned off for four to five hours.  This will disrupt the water flow to the nearby buildings.

In order to minimize the inconvenience to the adjacent buildings, DeKalb County has suggested this work take place in the evening, starting at approximately 11:00 p.m. As part of the work, the new water line will be filled with water, chlorinated and flushed prior to the switchover, which should help with any sediment or air gaps in the water line. For questions, please contact John Maximuk, John.Maximuk@decaturga.com, 678-710-5165.

Changes for Permitting in the City of Decatur

Starting January 21, 2014, permitting services will take place in a new location at the renovated Public Works Facility, 2635 Talley Street.

The move takes place at the same time as the formation of a new one-stop shop for permitting that will make it easier for residents and applicants to access these services.  This one-stop shop is part of a larger reorganization and the creation of the new Design, Environment & Construction Division of Public Works.  The new Division will be home to permitting, inspections, engineering, streets, the storm water utility, and codes enforcement.
