Councilmember Saucier has personally championed the "Make Some Noise To Stop The Noise" campaign. She strongly urged all in attendance to remain diligent about reporting noise complaints to Hartsfield-Jackson. Councilmember Saucier went onto discuss the revamp of the city’s Access East Point app for reporting issues to the city, with a particular emphasis on how to report noise pollution.

Councilmember Cook broached the subject of short-term rentals in the city, stating that a more in-depth discussion will take place at an upcoming town hall. East Point hosted a town hall earlier this year to gather feedback from residents before passing legislature on what Cook referred to as a ‘beast’ of a topic.
