City Of Brookhaven Announces Two Informational Events

One of the events is an open house set for next Wednesday, Jan. 16, from 2-3:30 pm.

The new city of Brookhaven will hold an open house next week at its temporary city offices, where staff will be on hand to answer questions on community development and finance.

The open house will run from 2-3:30 pm on Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013. The city's temporary offices are located at 200 Ashford Center North.

The city also has announced a town hall meeting set for Thursday, Jan. 24, at Marist School, 3790 Ashford Dunwoody Road. The event is designed to introduce the new city's mayor, city council and department heads.

“This town hall will be a time for us to engage with our residents. We want this to be an open informational forum,” said Mayor J. Max Davis, “and we hope everyone will attend.”

Mr. John, when an issue of malfeasance arises in Brookhaven, and, it surely will, my voice will not be heard. Because my comrades in district one will be drowning me out! However, I would like to turn your attention to the city budget. If we had one that would fulfill all of the promises made by C$ND and Brookhaven Yes it would have been presented to citizens of this fine city by now. But, it hasn’t! Just why do you think that we have had that visitor from Dunwoody for so long? Please pass the yellow mustard!
HamBurger January 10, 2013 at 07:25 PM
Mr. John, you may find this article of interest. Looks like this individual intent on straightening out the Fulton board of elections may have actually contributed to its chaos. How is that for a warm and fuzzy? http://tinyurl.com/b2syuoj Please pass the yellow mustard!
Eddie E. January 10, 2013 at 09:45 PM
Mr. Burger, Certainly doesn't seem to bode well for those with 'miltonia' in their eyes.

And burger when you are wrong about your latest conspiracy regarding the budget will you apologize or admit? No again. Just like when you were wrong about "pay to play" and other conspiracies you will keep ignoring your failed snide assumptions and claims and move on to your next attempt to create a perception that will never become reality. You are obviously intelligent but your personality and character are paying a steep price for all those smarts.
HamBurger January 10, 2013 at 11:12 PM
Mr. Eddie, the Brookhaven budget issue is a WTF moment just waiting to happen. The question is when and how will our city father will decide to present his citizens with that WTF moment? I am betting that will be a very low profile announcement. I certainly hope this does not relate to a local mustard shortage!
HamBurger January 10, 2013 at 11:42 PM
I appreciate your multiple and varied personas over the past year. However, would not that be a better question asked once the Brookhaven budget is published? Now, regarding “pay to play”, I see J. Max Davis has accepted contributions from the Pink Pony. Have you seen any discussion before the city council regarding adult entertainment? Do you think it was proper for J. Max Davis to accept campaign contributions from the Pink Pony and then be involved in crafting ordnances regarding adult entertainment? Make your cityhood decisions with no indication of impropriety. Don’t take money from “interested parties” and then claim that you are representing me, because you have proven to be you have only thought of yourself. Hey, you want a special hamburger?

It's hard to imagine that nobody here has ever heard the story of the boy who cried wolf. Some of you haven't just been crying it, you've seemingly got it on robo-post. When the real wolf comes calling, your future cries will be going into the mental spam filter, where your current ones have been going for quite some time. As for the missing info on the official Brookhaven web site, perhaps had I sent J.Max a check and got the IT contract, it would be there. Clearly my mistake.
Eddie E. January 11, 2013 at 04:22 AM
And where is that Budget?
Eddie E. January 11, 2013 at 01:05 PM
John, An old friend from Peachtree Corners was in last week. After being mildly in favor of their incorporation efforts, he has come to the realization of just what they bought..... Which is an additional $150k of overhead to provide absolutely no additional services. If providing nothing extra costs only $150k, how much additional will we all be on the hook for in providing the verdant gardens, kilomiles of asphalt, stepford zoning enforcement and imaginary adequacy of Police coverage?
HamBurger January 11, 2013 at 01:29 PM
Mr. John, in that fairy tale book of yours, which story comes first. The Brookhaven Budget Fairy Tale or the Boy Cried Wolf Fairy Tale? You should have sent J. Max a check. The calendar for Brookhaven has yet to be updated. Please pass the yellow mustard!
John McGrew January 11, 2013 at 01:47 PM
I've always been less than confident about the budget too. But I keep feeling better all the time. At first it was less than $8 million. Then before the election, Decatur was preparing to lose $12 million. Now Decatur is trying to sell a sales tax increase because they say that the loss of Brookhaven is going to cost them $25 million. If they're right, we're going to be swimming in cash. Perhaps we'll be able to afford those leaf-vacuuming trucks after all.
Richard Head January 11, 2013 at 02:12 PM
What is a fact? Sandy Springs and Dunwoody both look a lot better with the roadway improvements, paving, new sidewalks. There is more infrastructure work completed since incorporation, in both places, than was accomplished in the last ten to fifteen years of County governance. So while Eddie and HamBurger maintain their verbal circle jerk, the rest of us will continue working on improving the area.
HamBurger January 11, 2013 at 03:36 PM
Mr. John, are you suggesting that Brookhaven, at some future date, may be in the waste business? Please pass the yellow mustard!
John McGrew January 11, 2013 at 03:46 PM
Mr. Burger, I'd hope not. Bit then again, if it means waste collection done more efficiently with workers who do not harass citizens for "tips", I wouldn't count it out.

How does it Profit a man to live in a Sterling City, beset by a Pewter County?
Eddie E. January 11, 2013 at 05:01 PM
richard, Yep, you get busy with that!
Eddie E. January 11, 2013 at 05:50 PM
pray tell, where is this 'sterling city'? Don't polish too hard or that cheap plating will flake off!
Richard Head January 11, 2013 at 05:57 PM
If the City turns out better than you thought, would you man-up and say, "I was mistaken." ?
Ich bin ein Berliner Burger January 11, 2013 at 07:47 PM
I appreciate your multiple personalities and personas as well. "However, would not that be a better question asked once the Brookhaven budget is published?" Exactly, so why make the conspiratorial accusation? It is like you know what you should be saying but your mind is overwhelmed by this persona with an unyielding urge to assert that everybody is up to no good. Please tell me "where you see" what contributions from the Pink Pony any candidate in Brookhaven has taken. If a lawyer in general practice makes a campaign contribution how does that translate into all of his clients having made that contribution? Secondly, what decision or action in favor of the mythical Pink Pony contributor(s) has the Mayor or other city council member(s) taken? From all I have seen and heard the Pink Pony is vehemently opposed to any new ordinance the council may be considering. So, again, the exact opposite of your conspiracy claim is what the actual facts bear out. You just keep racking up the apologies that you will never give.
Richard Head January 11, 2013 at 08:17 PM
Sandy Springs is doing rather nicely, and Dunwoody offers newly improved roads, sidewalks, and by doggone, an effective Police force: Caught two of three weasels that wormed their way through the drive in window on January 7th. "At approximately 0409 this morning, Dunwoody Police responded to an Armed Robbery at the McDonald’s located at 4540 Ashford Dunwoody Road. While the driver of a dark sedan vehicle was at the drive thru window ordering food, two suspects ran up from a hiding location behind the building toward the service window. The first suspect pointed a dark colored pistol at the clerk. Subsequently, both suspects jumped through the window into the store and took an undisclosed amount of cash. " Busted, Eddie!

Hello. I've been walking the PATH trail for a year twice a week (lost 15lbs!) mostly for knee surgery therapy. I've been watching some type of TEMPLE being built at the corner of A-D Rd/ Nancy Creek. Is this going to be something to do with the city? Just curious, didn't know who or where to ask. I hope the city does well.
Eddie E. January 11, 2013 at 09:49 PM
richard, Of course..... But right now all I see is massive self-inflicted broken arms from patting each other on the back.
Eddie E. January 11, 2013 at 09:50 PM
Sandy Springs is in another County and I don't go to Dunwoody so I am not really interested in what happens there.
Booyah January 11, 2013 at 10:16 PM
It might be the new headquarters for the Ashford Alliance. I think Sandy Murray might still be the President. That is the consolation prize when you lose every political race you enter.
HamBurger January 12, 2013 at 01:36 AM
Mr. Jerry, it is just me, the one and only Mr. HamBurger. No other. Let’s cut to the chase. There is no conspiracy, just a very measured delay in presenting the citizens their budget that is being massaged into something appeasable to citizens by our visitor from Dunwoody. He is just trying to figure out how to soften the budget deficit as sold by C$ND and Brookhaven Yes with the Vinson study. So when will it be shared? Where is that budget??? Hit a sore spot with the contributions comment did I? What did you expect to happen if questionable contributions were taken? Not everyone in Brookhaven is as naive as you think they are. Just check the records and connect the dots. But, don’t worry, you will be OK, this city is not run on facts and figures, but emotions. Just wait till folks “wake up”. Regarding Pink Pony and other adult oriented businesses I am disinterested. What I don’t want to see is some kind of crappy HOA law that results into an “attorney full employment act” citizen expense that continues for years like in your sister city of Sandy Springs. Is it a conspiracy with you folks every time a citizen questions anything about this new city? So, folks actually have no voice unless they are gleichschritt? And, get a clue, citizens do not apologize for making their government responsible! If it works? You are even. If not? You have problems. Have a special hamburger and a Cheerwine while you think about that!
Berger Burger January 12, 2013 at 08:36 AM
"I see J. Max Davis has accepted contributions from the Pink Pony..." -Just another lie you keep telling, not a sore spot. "Is it a conspiracy with you folks every time a citizen questions anything about this new city?" If you only asked questions then there could be answers as part of a back and forth dialogue - the way reasonable folks like to engage. You typically don't focus on questions rather you make accusatorial statements tagged with some conspiratorial overtone. Hence the conspiracies flow from your keyboard not from the "folks". You jump 5 and 6 steps into the future to where you hope things will be- not like Bobby Fisher but like Oliver Stone.
WeDeserveMoreFromDeKalb January 12, 2013 at 03:56 PM
I don't go to Dunwoody and Sandy Springs is in another County, plus, I suffer from political myopia and cannot see past my mailbox. You have no credibility, Eddie. Why you, along with Doucheburger, waste your time here posting negative hypothetical conspiracy tales is both beyond comprehension and somewhat pathological. You are a C- pol hack and really not very good at making Democrats appear sensible. Kindly, We Deserve More from DeKalb
HamBurger January 12, 2013 at 05:06 PM
Mr. Jerry, Questions are not really wanted. As a matter of fact they are sometimes actually verboten if they touch upon a subject that makes certain folks uncomfortable.. Folks were taught well prior to the vote for HB 636, and during the campaign. Plus, folks not in gleichschritt are quickly marked for ridicule and ostracization. It has occurred prior to city formation and it continues since its formal creation. How is the attendance at city council meetings? Are you getting many questions from the citizenry? You typically do not answer the questions posed, but twist questions into accusatorial statements tagged with some conspiratorial overtone. When will you present Brookhaven citizens with their budget? What is the timeline for rolling out all of the city services promised by C$ND and Brookhaven Yes as detailed in the Vinson study? When will these questions be answered? As for Oliver Stone, being the neighborhood video guru, which of his videos are you suggesting from his bibliothek this month? Please pass the yellow mustard!
