Mr. Eric, regarding tax bill specifics and the details of inclusions in the various line items for cities vs. unincorporated DeKalb, we are really spinning our wheels just guessing. I would make a call to the tax office and see if they can provide you with greater detail to your questions. If they give you the run-a-round, just tell them you are an attorney . . . Please pass the yellow mustard!

No, me having a one on one phone call is not the transparency I am talking about. DeKalb should be able to post monthly and annual financial reports like the City of Dunwoody does on their Website. I should be able to go on line and see what the revenues and expenses of the Sheriff's office is, of the CEO's office, of the Commissioners' office, etc. etc. And anyone should be able to look at their tax bill and see what portion of their taxes are going to fund the Jail, the CEO's office, the Commissioners' office etc. etc.

JQPublic voted for the city? Maybe his avatar wanted to but his real body certainly did not based on his past posts. The county screwed around with the millage to influence the vote-period. It was coordinated with the no city group and emails and their last pre-election mailings show it.

AshfordObserver/Corey Self - Sorry that I am coming late to this series of posts. Observer is likely just copying Self, but if you have something that shows I am/was a member of a "No Group," could you please share it with me? (Unless you are quoting April Hunt, who also has this reported incorrectly.) The comment or observation is not correct. I am a strong supporter of the city and was secretary of the BrookhavenYES Board up to the point that Representative Jacobs changed the city charter from the Dunwoody model to a DeKalb County model. I did not support that change. I felt that it was best for the group to continue with those that subscribed to the 4 district plus mayor model. I can easily defend the choice that I made. I fully support the formation of Brookhaven and Patch published my editorial on why we should form this city. Now, I will work to make it work.

I seem to remember Larry D quitting Brookhaven Yes, trashing them in an editorial and then palling around with Laurenthia Mesh and her no city group.
