Unclog the FOG

Did you know Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) can cause serious problems for our sewer system? Fats are derived from meats, cheeses, ice cream and butters. Oils include vegetable, canola and olive oils, as well as oil-based salad dressings.

Grease is melted fat from cooking meats that becomes solid again at room temperature. If you dispose of FOG down your sink drain, it will solidify and cling to the walls of the indoor plumbing, as well as the public sewer pipes outside. Read More

Residential Parking Reminders
In any residential district, the parking of any motor vehicle except on a hard-surfaced driveway or in a carport or garage is prohibited. 

Any recreational vehicle or any non-motor vehicle may only be parked in a car-port, enclosed structure, or in the rear yard on a paved surface. 

Any vehicles parked in the rear yard not in a carport or an enclosed structure must be parked at least fifteen (15) feet from the property line. 

Prohibited parking or storage of any motor or recreational vehicle is a violation of the Zoning Ordinance Off-Street Parking (Yard Parking) (ZR1001.5)
For additional informational, contact Peachtree Corners Code Enforcement at 678-691-1200.
Who is Responsible for Scheduling Permits?
The two most common residential items that typically need permits issued by any building department are: water heater change out; or a furnace/air conditioner replacement.  Most of these permits are issued to contractors as only a few homeowners wish to take on the work for themselves.
