What are you most looking forward to in the City of Brookhaven?

As citizens of Brookhaven we were all promised many things that sound good. But when the rubber meets the road, will we get what was promised?

At LAST! We have an elected administration. Now it's time to get busy framing out the city for real and getting down to business. As citizens of Brookhaven we were all promised many things that sound good. But when the rubber meets the road, will we get what was promised? It will be up to each of us to settle for nothing less than we were promised...and demand it in a timely fashion.

The Key Promises are:

• A First Class Police Force
• Lower Taxes
• Pristine Parks
• Freshly Paved Roads
• Strict Code Enforcement
• Responsible Planning and Zoning

It is imperative that the people of Brookhaven hold the Mayor and City Council to deliver on their promises.

What service is most important to you in our new city?

Good points about FOG, keeping Fats Oil and Grease out of the drain. I keep a container next to the sink to pour grease into. And looking at the cutaways of how it clogs up sewer pipes makes me want to further reduce my fat intake - imagine what it does to your arteries. As to local government Youtube's, musically I like this largely volunteer effort by MARTA - the Marta Safety Slide! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9cFVdWQiaw

Carl, I stand corrected. We are apparently now to be prevented from expecting what we were promised (whether we believed the promises or not), instead the expectation is apparently now for us all to 'roll up our sleeves' so we can share in the eventual failure!! In the interim, everyone is expected to refrain from stating the obvious and use statements such as, 'That is a spectacular garment the Emperor is wearing today'.

CVI hit a home run. The budget balances and is right in line with projections.

Perfect. Then there should be no problem with a city hall actually IN Brookhaven.
