Dunwoody Update: Tonight's Storm, Paving

1. Tonight’s Storm … I just received a call from Georgia Power and I know some of our citizens are without power especially on the south end of Dunwoody tonight. The Georgia Power representative informed me that one of their main transformers got hit and that they have all crews out working on the problem but they do not have an exact time when full power will be restored. You can go online to GeorgiaPower.com and click on storm/power outage and you can get updates from that page by putting in your address or ZIP Code. They also advise that we should consider any wire that is on the ground to the hot/live and to stay away from the wire. Unless you have emergency backup power you probably can't receive this email so I'm asking those in your neighborhood that can receive this email to please pass the word to our citizens w/o power.

2. Paving … Due the diligent efforts of our city staff we were able to locate a replacement milling sub-contractor in Augusta, GA to do the milling on Chamblee Dunwoody Rd from Robert Dr to Womack plus Nadine Lane. There will be no increase in cost to the city. They started yesterday morning. The milling will be followed by some extensive patching and then the final paving layer will be applied. The finish product will be an outstanding enhancement to the Dunwoody Village area. Be advised there will be delays encountered in the paving area while this process is ongoing. During the milling process the pavement will be very rough so please drive carefully. I strongly urge to seek out and take alternate routes for your travels during the paving process. This process will take at least two week to complete and that is with factoring in good weather condition. This will take a lot of patience on the part of all of us but the end results will be well worth it.

3. That is all for this evening. Please pass this on to your friends, neighbors and members of your HOA. If anyone wants to be added to my email list just let me know. Thanks for all each of you do to make us a great "city family.” Let us all work to create an atmosphere of mutual respect that we all desire!

Let Us Continue to Build Our City Together!
