Weekend Plans - football, supporting our neighbor's festivals and more football.


I just got back from the Dunwoody High School football game where I spent some quality time with my 11 yr old son Riley.  We seemed to see half the town (and several political candidates) there as it was homecoming night and the Court was dressed to the nines.  We sat between the Band and the Cheerleaders and had a great time watching a well played game by Dunwoody winning 34 - 3.  Between my weekend honey-do list and kids activities, including a football game with the Atlanta Colts where I am the designated water-boy, I am going to try to squeeze in the Taste of Chamblee which is taking place on Saturday.

I think I will also hit up the Dunwoody Lacrosse Car Wash too as it needs to be done and I know the program is busting at the seams with little resources or grounds to play on as they have lofty long term plans for the program.  Sunday, I might hit up the Sandy Springs Festival which is going on all weekend, but I may need to be well rested for that Falcons / Eagles game which starts late?

Councilman, I know this inquiry doesn't pertain to this particular blog post, but I was just curious, why is it that all the Dunwoody Community Development vehicles, with the Dunwoody Community Development, Smart People - Smart City, decals all over the truck have Gwinnett County plates instead of DeKalb County (at least the pick-up trucks that I have observed)?

In fact the plate holders are so thick it almost appears as though there was an intent to hide the "Gwinnett" display as you can only view about a third of the "Gwinnett" text.

I know there must be a legitimate reason for this (e.g. the Dunwoody Development contractor is located in Gwinnett County, or part of Dunwoody is in Gwinnett County, or Gwinnett plates are cheaper, etc.), but as I said I was just curious.

Thank-you! You are a good and honest Councilman.

Thanks for the question Bob. I did a little checking and was told that Clark Patterson Lee, the company that does our community development work is located in Suwanee therefore they used their corporate address when they registered the vehicles 3 years ago. At that time there was no city hall and temporary space was being utilized in Fulton County therefore that was probably the best solution at the time. Since Clark Patterson Lee now has a Dunwoody business license and a stable Dunwoody mailing address, I am sure this administrative detail will be reviewed and corrected if necessary.
