PTC Mayor: we'll keep our fire department; no need to consolidate services with county

The Peachtree City Council has no plans to consolidate its fire department in a joint effort being explored by the Fayette County and Fayetteville governing bodies.

Because of all the talk surrounding the potential merger of the county and Fayetteville departments, Peachtree City Mayor Vanessa Fleisch took time at Thursday’s City Council meeting to assure residents they are not going to consider joining the effort in any way.

Fleisch said she and the other council members wanted to reaffirm their support for the Peachtree City Fire Department “and the current levels of service it provides our community.”

“We wanted to take this moment to reaffirm that support and to confirm to both the department and to the citizens of this city that consolidation is not a topic of conversation with this mayor and council,” Fleisch said.
