In its final report, the commission said that Severn Trent, InterDev, Jacobs, Lowe and The Collaborative provide the best overall value of municipal government services of the firms that provided applications.

A total of 14 companies submitted applications for Brookhaven's municipal services.

The commission also recommended that The Collaborative, Jacobs and another firm, Clark Patterson Lee, be awarded contracts after city services have been initialized. The commission recommended that Clark Patterson Lee be awarded a community development services contract.

How much more does the unelected 'commission' have in store for the Taxpayers?

eDDIE, you always been such a whiner? Funny how a strong supporter of Atlanta-area Democrats talks about ethics policy.

NO Governors Commission Members should be allowed to accept a position with the city. Period.

JG-- it is pretty clear that the whiners will always whine. The usual suspects are almost like a tag team. If they let up a bit on their carping and actually try to be proactively positive instead of reactively negative, the council members and mayor can get some breathing room without the "Gang of Five Whiners" criticizing everything.

Hey RS, no worries with Lowes. They made the correct contributions. They should be fine. Ask Phil, this would not consititute pay to play.

Wow Phil - you are the self-appointed Judith Martin (Miss Manners) of these forums. It must be a very difficult position to do as efficiently as you do. Is Brookhaven looking for a person of your skills? You should apply!

How many of these vendors are already associated with Sandy Springs or Dunwoody? If so, is that a concern or not? Finally, I'm currently out of town and will miss tonight. I'm looking forward to hearing what develops as we take our first steps.

jg, What should exempt the tiny group of Dekalb County republicans from ethical policy? Don't you find it odd that invention of a new layer of government was necessary to provide this 'exemption'?

Phil, in the run up to cityhood, our founding fathers that you have vigorously defended, promoted lower taxes for Brookhaven. Now that they have backed off that claim, do you not consider that a lie? If not a lie, what would constitute a lie to you?
Jack of Kings December 10, 2012 at 06:37 PM
FreddieK--what are you? --Self-appointed Whiner of the Year? Sorry...but that award is shared jointly by a number of posters here. Get in line for that award in 2013.

Mr. Lutz, Lower Taxes. Lie. Our local tax dollars staying in Brookhaven. Lie. What will be next?
Eddie E. December 10, 2012 at 06:50 PM
Phil, You should get out more. Then you might encounter enough busy TAXPAYERS who don't have time to counter the B(ull)YES cheerleaders.
Eddie E. December 10, 2012 at 06:51 PM
Phil, Tax bills should turn it from a list into a VOLUME.

"It is pretty clear that..."---Filemon That corporatist governments do not tolerate even constructive criticism.

"...Whiner of the Year?...Get in line..."---Filemon Behind yourself. Do note: Leaving "Self-appointed" out was no accident.
