Public Notices

Public notices inform citizens of government or government-related activities that affect their everyday lives.

State and federal laws require that information about government activities must be accessible in order for the electorate to make well-informed decisions. For citizens who want to know more about government activities, public notices in newspapers provide this sort of accessibility.

The City of Johns Creek publishes its public notices in the Johns Creek Herald, a weekly print newspaper and the City's approved legal organ. They are also published online in the Herald's listing of Legal Ads and in the home page scroller on this website.

When timing necessitates, Johns Creek public notices are also published in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a daily print and online publication.

The City Clerk's office is responsible for the placing of Public Notices.
