Video of September 27th Dunwoody City Council Meeting
Meeting recap, we amended the 2010 budget to remove two buildings at Brook Run, put $100,000 towards sidewalks, outlawed littering (including blowing leaves and grass into the street), cleaned up the tax code with minor edits, rejected the proposed noise ordinance changes, deferred the accessory structures change, approved the sign plan for the Dunwoody Music Festival, hired an Economic Development Manager to promote new businesses within the City, and deferred a decision on repaving Dunwoody Club Drive until discussions with Sandy Springs can be had regarding standardized lane widths.
I forgot to add that we also passed the Outdoor Lighting Efficiency Ordinance which would require efficient operation of outdoor lighting by limiting misdirected, excessive, or unnecessary outdoor lighting. There was a last minute change to this proposal which allowed upward sign lighting, which I was against because it is contrary to what was intended, but since this ordinance was not specifically targeting signs and even had a statement in there that it was not applicable to signs (page 4, last sentence on applicability); I voiced my concerns and approved the measure along with the other council members present.
