If appearances hold true it looks as if the vote to create the City of South Fulton will be postponed.

Fulton County Registration Chief John Sullivan said Wednesday the June 19 vote will likely be delayed in the absence of a signature by Gov. Sonny Perdue on House Bill 725 and a pre-clearance by U.S. Dept. of Justice.

Sullivan said there would be several mountains to climb in the effort leading to the June 19 vote, adding that the four week period remaining until poll time would make the vote on the City of South Fulton unlikely. The vote might be held in September or some later date.

The vote for the creation of the City of Chattahoochee Hills, also scheduled for June 19, will go forward as planned, Sullivan said.
