The enactment and adoption of House Bill 493, also known as the "Private Permitting Review and Inspection Act", provides local procedures for the evaluation of permit applications and the completeness of submittals, along with other purposes. Through the implementation of a detailed checklist and affidavit, the legislation mandates the acknowledgement and communication of application completeness to the permit applicant.
NOTE: Applications that do not provide adequate documentation and/or required materials will be noted as incomplete and may result in delays in the processing of the application. Incomplete submittals can no longer be accepted into the permitting process and will be returned to the applicant until all required submittals are received.
The Chatham County Board of Commissioners approved Senate Bill 17 (SB 17) and amend Alcoholic Beverage Code: Chapter 17, Article I, Section 113 to allow the sale of alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises in eating establishments or inns between the hours of 11:00 am and 12:00 midnight on Sunday. However, this new code does not permit Georgia consumers to purchase alcohol before 12:30 p.m. from grocery, retail or liquor stores. Any questions, please contact Occupational Tax at 912.201.4302
