Dunwoody Update: Public Information Meeting, Communications, Paving, Voting, Safety, Dunwoody Restaurants

1. Public Information Meeting … There will be a public information meeting tonight on the Mt Vernon Rd / Tilly Mill Rd intersection project. The meeting is tonight - Tuesday, AUG 16 - from 6 - 8 PM at All Saints Catholic Church located at 2443 Mt Vernon Rd in Dunwoody. Come and listen to the possibilities for the intersection improvements and provide your input.

2. Communications … Repeat item. It is important that all of us stay informed on what is going on in our city. We have several initiatives that we in the city have to keep you informed. These include items of interest in the local media, our Dunwoody website - dunwoodyga.gov - that you should check frequently and our “Dunwoody E-News.” The Dunwoody E-News is put out in an email forum every Friday afternoon by our city communications personnel. It is full of the events, new updates, etc. of what is going on in our city. To get this valuable weekly email you have to sign up … there are currently over 13,000 subscribers. This is not a political document nor are we trying to sell you anything … we are just trying to keep you informed. I highly recommend you sign up for this service. Sign up is easy … just go to …. https://public.govdelivery.com/accounts/DUNWOODYGA/subscribers/new?topic_id=DUNWOODYGA_1

3. Paving … Paving on many streets continue though out the city. The paving on Chamblee Dunwoody Rd from Roberts Dr to Womack is another story. On Thursday, July 28 our paving contractor, for this project, told our staff in a meeting that they would start milling on Chamblee Dunwoody Rd on Sunday night July 30. This is the origin of the paving information in my email update of July 29. On Friday evening July 29 we were informed that there might be a problem and they would call us Sunday night to let us know. We did not get a call Sunday night. The miller was a sub-constructor.  We were supposed to start milling earlier in July but that was delayed due problems that arose from the water pipe installation by DC. We are working daily with our contractor as well as contacting every contractor in the area to get the milling started without positive results. The problem is paving business is good and all the contractors we have contacted are busy. We will keep you informed … as soon as we know something it will be passed. See # 2 above.

3. Voting … For those of you who have not registered to vote or have moved to a new location since you last registered the deadline to registered in OCT 11, 2016 … this is for the NOV election.
