With the amount of unknowns that the Dunwoody City Council is dealing with in setting a budget, some might say that we are flirting with disaster but my gut tells me that our City Manager Warren Hutmacher and his skilled staff will bring us very close to our financial targets. None the less, we the City Council have always taken a very conservative view in our financial planning and are questioning all discrepancies.
If Ms. Shari O'Halloran the Owner of Mudcatz Bayou Bar & Grill has her way, the Pavillion in Dunwoody will be a major music venue with a stage, dance floor and capacity to hold between 300 and 400 people with one of the possible first acts being Molly Hatchet. (Shari, please save me two seats up front.) Link to News Story.
I missed the first Dunwoody Elementary School PTO meeting on Monday (because of a four hour city council meeting) where the election of the PTO officers were taking place. I believe congratulations are in order to the proposed board whom I am guessing is now the newly elected board. Since my boys will be attending this school for the next four years, I look forward to working with Co-Presidents Peggy Stecker & Kevin Cameron, VP's Marian Sheffield & Paige Ratonyi, Secretary Kim Fobas, Treasurer Kim Mc George & Financial Secretary Richard Starks.

I had the pleasure of using the services of Dunwoody Personal Computers for a little computer assistance and I highly recommend Adam, he's great and does fast efficient work. 404-702-3726.
For a website that is based on transparency, I tip my hat to a relatively new site that is doing great investigative work, http://www.atlantaunfiltered.com. The recent story on Terrell Bolton is top notch investigating and now the story has been picked by the AJC, WSB TV and the DeKalb Officers site.
Last chance to join the Dunwoody North swim team on Thurs. Info here.

I was just notified that the Dunwoody PD responded to a 3 car vehicle accident and the writer of the e-mail stated that it took less than 4 minutes to have two cars on scene. Outstanding !!
