The Locust Grove City Council welcomed two new council members to its ranks at its Monday meeting.
The Locust Grove City Council unanimously approved its budget for the coming year.
Atlanta developer Insignia LLC calls the $116 million project Lotus Grove, which would include the rental housing units; a 97-room Hilton brand hotel; a 22,000-square-foot food hall; 73,000 square feet of retail and office space.
Locust Grove Mayor Robert Price is hoping an extra 90 minutes of imbibing on Sundays will help attract sit-down restaurants to his city.
Supporters of the new location have stated the area could address court overcrowding and the county’s lack of space to conduct operations.
