IS THE CONCEPT OF A CITY LITE UNCONSTITUTIONAL?

Post by Relentless » August 26th, 2015, 12:16 pm

The Association of County Commissioners of Georgia (ACCG) in recent meetings appears to be coming to a conclusion that its organization will advocate before the Georgia Legislature that the city lite concept IS unconstitutional.

There is no mention or distinction of/or between a "City/Municipality Lite" and a City/Municipality in the Georgia Constitution. Only a "City or Municipality" is addressed. This means that the functions and responsibilities of either are ultimately the same. So, the suggestion that there is a difference in the way each is run is misguided.

ie. A simple vote of the "City/Municipality's Light" by the city council can change it to a full fledged "City/Municipality" at any time overnight. No vote of the city residents is required since the vote to bring the "City/Municipality" into existence has already occurred.
