About Johns Creek: The city was part of a second wave of North Fulton County cities to incorporate. City leaders have stressed the need to address a growing problem with congested and crumbling roads. Members of the city’s Charter Commission recently successfully lobbied to allow a majority of voters to approve a tax increase to raise funds if such a measure is needed. Any tax increase would still have to be approved by a majority of voters in a special referendum. The charter change allows the city some flexibility to catch up on its overtaxed infrastructure.
