Dunwoody Update: Volunteer Day, Town Hall Meeting, Leaves, Pine Needles, Etc


  1. Volunteer Day or Clean, Fix and Shine Up Dunwoody Day … The date is this Saturday, OCT 13. Meet at Brook Run Park at 8:45 AM and the work day will go from 9 AM to 12 noon … there will not be a penalty if you work longer! This year we are going to plant trees in Brook Run Park and the Dunwoody Nature Center, plant flowers and clean up trails in Brook Run Park and clean street signs through out the city (come with a list of dirty street signs in your area you can tackle that task). All equipment and supplies for all the above tasks will be supplied. You might want to bring some gloves. The weather is forecast to be perfect … a low in the morning of 52 and a high of 72 degrees. There is no such thing of having too many volunteers of this day so bring your family members, friends, neighbors, co-workers, church members and any else you can think of. This is a great community spirit building event so I will see you all there this Saturday morning.
  2. Town Hall Meeting … I will be having my annual town hall meeting next Tuesday, OCT 16 from 7 - 8:30 PM. The location is our new Dunwoody City Hall. Come hear and be heard about current topics of interest in our city. I will be doing a presentation on where we have been, where we are now and where we are going in the future. The will the a question and answer period at the end of my presentation.
  3. Leaves, Pine Needles, Etc. … As we all know it is the season for leaves, pine needles and other fall items that hit the ground. This is a request not to put or (allow to the extent possible) any of these items down our street storm water drains. This is extreme important as these items can cause our storm water pipes to clog which results in street flooding. Clearing clogged pipes is an expensive items and that takes away funds that can be used to make positive improvement to our city. Remember … all of us must be financially vigilant in the use of our tax dollars!
