Second Brookhaven City Council Meeting Set For Tonight

Items on the agenda include appointing interim city manager and finance director.

The Brookhaven City Council will hold its second meeting on Wednesday night at 7 pm, at St. Martin's Episcopal School.

Mayor J. Max Davis and the newly elected council held their first meeting on Monday night, which Patch featured live here.

Some of tonight's agenda items include:

  • hiring an executive search firm to find candidates for Brookhaven city manager; and
  • appointing an interim city manager, clerk and finance director/city accountant.

A copy of the council's Wednesday night agenda is attached to this article as a PDF.

Some highlights of Monday night's proceedings:

  • DeKalb Superior Court Judge Dan Coursey administered the oaths of office to Davis and the three other city council members who were present.
  • District 3 Councilman Bates Mattison was not present. He was sworn in this past Friday, and both Davis and District 4 councilman Joe Gebbia said Mattison was on a long-planned family outing.
  • The city council approved the Brookhaven Commission's recommendations for temporary office space in Dunwoody and Corporate Square.
  • The council approved William Riley and Lynn Rosser as acting city attorney and clerk, respectively.

Ok when are the clowns going to start their apologies to our Mayor? I am sure they will be just as vehement in their admissions of just how wrong they were as they were about the matter of fact way they repeated "pay to play" nonsense ad nauseum. There was pretty significant news made at tonight's council meeting when a Severn Trent 1.7 million $ contract recommended by the commission and a 1.5 $ contract from JAT ( one of tbe 2 "potential vendors" who gave to J.Max Davis' campaign) were disregarded by the council in favor of a $ 990,000 contract offered by a vendor who made no campaign contribution to any candidates for office. I thought the "fix was in"? What happened Eddie, burger , EPU, Joe the P, FreddieK, Carl, and the rest of you nattering nabobs? Just stick to your dishonest narrative as that is all you know and please don't admit you were wrong- it would be a disappoIntment and a little uncomfortable to have my world turned upside down if you did anything but stick to your rusty guns.

A vendor who made no campaign contributions to any candidate(s) was selected over a vendor who did contribute and another vendor who was the first recommendation of the " fix is in" Governor's Commission. Vote was unanimous and the item was put in the agenda by the Mayor. Pretty clear actually, so wondering when the apologies will start rolling in. Any updates on that?

Mr. P2P, it is the duty of the citizens to make sure our elected officials play fair. It is a part of making sure our new government works for all of us, not just a select few. If we have to hold their feet to the fire, so be it. You evidently have a problem with that. You do not apologize for doing your civic duty. Please pass the yellow mustard!

It seems to me the process worked....there were enough voices, concerns and expectations raised to make this outcome possible. Now, no let up going forward. The same voices, concerns and expectations must carry forward. No sleeping at the wheel of accountability and transparency.

Well, Sandy and others slandered, defamed, and heaped personal and unfounded claims on max. Corruption, you name it. The lunatic fringe on here fired on all cylinders. Ate it up. Well dayum as they saw in Valdosta- their dire predictions DIDNT COME TRUE. Unanimous? For someone who didn't pay a cent? Oh my! Not a divided vote, not a close vote, 100% agreement. Sandy you miserable little serial campaign fine scofflaw, where are you now?

I also know that Sandy loves her community - anyone see her at any of the first meetings? No? What's the over/under on how many she makes in year 1? zero? I'll take the under if it's at 4.
