6. City Appearance … We all moved to Dunwoody for the high quality of life that all our citizens enjoy. One of the factors in our high quality of life is a neat and clean city appearance. I encourage everyone to do a little self inspection to insure we are all keeping our homes in a good state of repair, keeping our grass cut and and our yards maintained. Also, only putting out our trash cans the night before pick-up day and returning the trash cans to an out-of-sight location the night of the pick-up. If your neighbor is having some health problems or is going out of town step forward and volunteer to help out. All of this involves just being being a good neighbor. Lets keep our city neat and clean. Remember if there is a holiday during a week the daily pick-up maybe changed …. go to this website to see the entire 2017 DC Sanitation Holiday schedule. … http://www.dekalbcountyga.gov/sites/default/files/2017%20Holiday%20Collection%20Schedule.pdf

7. That is all for this today. 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! See you at the “State of the City" address this Thursday.

Let Us Continue to Build Our City Together!
