Please join me for an informational meeting on the proposal for a City of Brookhaven on Tuesday, May 24, at 7:00 p.m. in Lupton Auditorium in the main building of Oglethorpe University, 4484 Peachtree Road.
The Carl Vinson Institute of Government at the University of Georgia will be tasked with performing a feasibility study as to how a City of Brookhaven might impact your local services (either positively or negatively) and your taxes (again, either positively or negatively).
Tuesday's meeting will include Ted Baggett of the Carl Vinson Institute to answer your questions about what will go into the feasibility study and what we will be able to learn from it. The meeting also will include a citizen who was involved in the creation of the City of Dunwoody to discuss why that community looked to a new municipality to solve some of the problems inherent in big county governance.
In addition, I’ll be happy to answer your questions about the status of the Brookhaven proposal and how it could progress in the future.
