If you didn't attend last night's historic Brookhaven city council meeting, have no fear: Patch was there and recorded this video of the entire night's proceedings.
Some highlights of Monday night's proceedings:
- DeKalb Superior Court Judge Dan Coursey administered the oaths of office to Mayor J. Max Davis and the three other city council members who were present.
- District 3 Councilman Bates Mattison was not present. He was sworn in this past Friday, and both Davis and District 4 councilman Joe Gebbia said Mattison was on a long-planned family outing.
- The city council approved the Brookhaven Commission's recommendations for temporary office space in Dunwoody and Corporate Square. Jed Beardsley, who chaired the commission's facilities committee, said several landlords in the city were not interested in municipal tenets, one reason why the Dunwoody location was chosen. "It's not unusual for cities to have temporary office space outside city limits," he said, citing Dunwoody and Sandy Springs as examples. Brookhaven's administrative offices will be located in Dunwoody, while its municipal court services will be housed, again temporarily, in Corporate Square.
- The council approved William Riley and Lynn Rosser as acting city attorney and clerk, respectively.
