Dunwoody Update: Town Hall Meeting, HB-302 and SB-172, Electronic Recycling Event, Paper Shredding Event, Police Open House, State of the City

1. Town Hall Meeting Tonight … Our state legislative representatives, Rep Michael Wilensky and Sen Sally Harrell will host a town hall meeting tonight, MAR 19, at our Dunwoody City Hall starting at 6 PM. Come get the latest information from the Golden Dome with only a few days left in the 2019 legislative session.

2. HB-302 and SB-172 … These are the companion Bills that would have basically taken away our ability of “Local Control” of zoning and code enforcement. Neither these Bills made it out committee prior to “cross over” day. My thanks to our lobbyist, council members, staff and most importantly you the citizens for contacting our state representatives and the state committee members in which the Bills were being heard. We must remain vigilant as there is always the possibility of a legislator trying to attach the language of these two Bills on to another Bill at the 11th hour. Only when the legislative session is officially closed will we be totally safe for this year from this complete overreach of “Local Control.

3. Electronic Recycling Event … As a reminder for those of you who signed up, this very popular event will take place this Sunday from 1 - 4 PM at St Luke's Presbyterian Church at 1978 Mt Vernon Rd. Sign up closed on MAR 15. Thanks to St Luke’s Parish for providing the facilities for this event. 

4. Paper Shredding Event … There is a paper shredding event at Harry Norman Realtors located at 4848 Ashford Dunwoody Rd from 9 AM to 12 PM on Saturday, April 13.  Each car may bring a maximum of 10 boxes. Staples and paper clips are allowed but no three ring binders or binder clips are allowed. Thanks to all the folks at Harry Norman Realtors for providing this service for our citizens. 

5. 10th Anniversary Dunwoody Police Open House … The Dunwoody Police - A Police Force Second to None - will hold an Open House at Dunwoody City Hall on APR 1, 2019 from 4 to 7 PM. There will be tours of the police areas that normally aren’t open to the public and members of our police force and staff will be there to answer questions, etc. It will be a good time.
