There were two votes taken by the Dunwoody City Council on Monday.
First the City Council listened to 24 minutes of public comment and a separate presentation on the Brook Run Theater and then we voted to demolish the building.
Second, DeKalb County presented us with an IGA (Intergovernmental Agreement) wanting our approval of a 1% additional sale tax when they have the ability to raise sales tax on their own. If Dunwoody and the other DeKalb cities agreed, this updated tax structure could be stretched to six years instead of five with terms favorable to the cities, but it was decided that the City of Dunwoody will not take a stand on such items until DeKalb County makes the first move. If the deadlocked County Commission (3 to 3) actually passes a referendum question that make sense by the end of the month; we always have an open door to discuss further.
I know for a fact that there are people out there who disagreed with both votes we made tonight but I believe in my heart they were the right decisions. Thanks
