Peachtree City UPDATES – Week of April 19


Peachtree City – California?
Don’t question your eyesight next week if you think you spot a California State flag flying at City Hall.

The flag will be raised for approximately two hours for a scheduled photo shoot, and then the Georgia and Peachtree City flags will be returned to their regular positions.
Traffic Notice – Change on left turns at Highway 54/74
Last week, west-bound drivers who frequently go through the Highway 54/74 intersection may have noticed a change. Drivers turning left (south) onto Highway 74 could previously turn intermittently as eastbound traffic allowed on a solid green signal.  All left turns are now on green arrow only.  This change was made by the Georgia Department of Transportation.

Teen CERT this summer
The PTC Police Department will hold a Teen Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.) class the week of June 14 – 18, 8:00 a.m. to noon each day.  This hands-on class will cover emergency preparedness, fire suppression, medical operations, CPR, light search and rescue, and moulage.  The week culminates with a full scale disaster exercise where the students can put the skills they’ve learned into practice.  There is no cost to participate.  The class is open to all students age 13 to 17.  Applications can be picked up at the Peachtree City Police Department or by following the Teen CERT link at
Question of the Week –  Does Peachtree City allow neighborhood soliciting/peddling? Peachtree City requires any business going door to door in neighborhoods to obtain a daily Solicitor’s Permit from the Peachtree City Police Station.  Recently, residents have reported a growing number of home repair and roofing contractors going door to door.  Please be sure to ask to see their Solicitor’s Permit.  Contractors should also be registered with the State of Georgia, and be sure they have adequate insurance.
