DeKalb Lobbyist Opposes Cityhood; Other Cityhood News And Notes
A roundup of recent tidbits of information in the ongoing debate over Brookhaven cityhood.
A few items of note from our good friends at the Dunwoody Crier and the Reporter Newspapers:
First, The Crier is reporting that Bruce Bowers, son of former Georgia Attorney General Mike Bowers, is on DeKalb County's payroll as a registered lobbyist. The report also said that Bowers actively lobbied the Georgia General Assembly against the Brookhaven cityhood bill.
Bowers, who lives in East Cobb, also said he has helped the NoCityBrookhaven organization as a private citizen. DeKalb Commission Elaine Boyer said that Bowers has exceeded the stipulations outlined in his contract with the county if he has actively supported a group either supporting or opposing Brookhaven cityhood.
Another piece in The Crier highlights the stormwater maintenance services that a new city of Brookhaven would assume.
Finally, an article in the Brookhaven Reporter said that BrookhavenYES is looking for volunteers who could work on plans for starting up the new city, should it be approved.
