Public Notices

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.
