Yard Signs Reported Stolen; Cityhood Meet & Greets
A new column that looks at news, information and other tidbits of interest regarding Brookhaven's cityhood debate.
For the past few weeks, Patch has received some e-mails and correpondence about pro- and anti-cityhood yard signs being stolen from residents' property.
One resident, who requested to remain anonymous, said a recent theft was the second time his anti-cityhood sign had been stolen. He also told Patch that most of the "No City" signs were stolen along his road as well.
Patch contacted the public information officer for the DeKalb County Police Department, who sent us this response: "We cannot confirm any incidents. No reports have been filed, but the precinct is aware of the claims and officers are on the lookout for any such activity."
If anyone knows of any such incidents in their community, Patch would welcome the chance to follow up on this item in the future.
This past Saturday in Brookhaven's Drew Valley community, residents came home to find letters posted on their mailboxes regarding an upcoming cityhood meeting in the community.
The event will be held this Wednesday, June 6, at the home of Byron Williamson, 2523 Drew Valley Road. Chamblee Mayor Eric Clarkston is scheduled to attend, as is Sandy Springs Councilman Ivan Figueroa.
The Drew Valley and Ashford Park neighborhoods seem to be Brookhaven's strongest anti-cityhood areas. From my perspective (and this is only my perspective), I estimate that for every pro-cityhood sign, there are 10 anti-cityhood signs in these communities.
Williamson also sits on the board of BrookhavenYES.
