Fulton Board Approves Extension for Transportation Employees Transitioning to City of South Fulton | Print |

At their October 17 meeting, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners approved an extension for the transition of transportation services to the City of South Fulton, now effective November 18, 2018. They also amended their previous Reduction in Force resolution to provide for an effort to place employees in other Fulton County positions as needed.


“Today’s vote by the Board continues our efforts to prioritize the needs of employees and I am pleased with the ,” said County Manager Dick Anderson. “Fulton County Public Works will continue providing a high quality service to citizens while the City of South Fulton finalizes its next steps.”

For more than a year, Fulton County has met with employees affected by the transition of services to the City of South Fulton.

The City of South Fulton previously provided notice that they would assume responsibility for transportation services effective November 5. As a result, on October 5, Fulton County issued Reduction in Force letters to 52 employees, consistent with the process used during the transition of other services to the city. 

On October 9, the City of South Fulton voted to enter into an agreement with the City of Peachtree Corners to leverage their transportation services contract with Jacobs Engineering.  Fulton County immediately requested that the City of South Fulton provide an update to affected employees. That update occurred today, October 17, prior to the Board of Commissioners’ meeting.

Fulton County will continue to work with the affected employees, along with the City of South Fulton, to hold additional meetings in coming weeks to ensure employees have the most current information including potential job opportunities with Fulton County, the City of South Fulton, Jacobs Engineering and other municipalities.

 In addition to the transition of employees, Fulton County has worked with the City to provide access to public works equipment used in transportation services, and has provided clear pricing throughout the process. Assets associated with transportation services are purchased with General Fund dollars collected countywide and are therefore not subject to the same rate structure provided by state law for Special Services District funded assets.
