Recap of the July 9th Dunwoody City Council Meeting
Agenda recap - there was only one real vote and that was a procedural item to move the Renaissance property over to the development authority. Other than that, there was discussion on a few items and I will give the 30,000 ft overview of the important items.
The City of Dunwoody puts out a high quality financial report but more importantly our auditors gave us a clean bill of health this evening.
The City released the branding concept on City Signage and we have already heard from a number of people who do not like the signs or the brand. The conversation on this topic is just starting and there will be opportunities for public input in the near future.
Councilwoman Bonser added an item to the agenda asking that the City pay for her (as well as Council's) legal bills in all ethics cases. The City Attorney believed it not to be necessary but they will come back after doing more research. The Dunwoody Board of Ethics will be meeting this evening at 5 pm to discuss the various complaints and though I may be considered a fool, I believe I can easily represent myself on one of the charges levied against me, as I wasn't there. ;-)
Councilman Shortal added an item to the agenda to get an update on the Chatcom 911 system enabling direct computer communication with DeKalb Fire known as "CAD to CAD". City Manager Warren Huttmacher admitted that a communication glitch was being worked on and hopefully it will be working soon. Warren stated that this was a top priority of City Hall and that staff was working diligently on getting it operational.
In City related news, this Crime needs to be solved and if it was determined to be a hate crime then the full extent of the law should be utilized.
