5 Tucker residents selected to serve on new board


Just under a year after voters officially made Tucker a city, it has appointed its inaugural Zoning Board of Appeals. 

The mayor appointed, and the City Council approved, the board of five. It will consider zoning requests and hear appeals "regarding interpretations made by the Community Development Director," according to a news release

Mayor Frank Auman said the appointees will serve the city well.

“We are thankful these residents are willing to share their wealth of knowledge and experience with the city of Tucker," Auman said.
