Expanded internet service, stormwater improvements, and assistance for local businesses and homeowners are among the initiatives the City of South Fulton is pursuing with funds from the federal American Rescue Plan Act.
City officials have approved $11.35 million dollars in projects that will be supported by those dollars. The city received half of the funding in May 2021 and will accept the remainder in May 2022.
‘We are thankful to our leaders in Washington, D.C. for supporting our city’s efforts to negotiate our way through unprecedented times,” said City Manager Tammi Saddler Jones. “We are committed to using these funds judiciously to support the needs of residents and the city as we recover and build a stronger South Fulton.”
Officials have divided the initiatives into three categories – community recovery, infrastructure improvements, and operations and services. The plan document below provides a breakdown of the approved programs.
