According to the Dunwoody Crier, December 17 will introduce Brookhaven, county’s largest city!
That makes TWO new cities in DeKalb county so far this millennium. Two very big cities with very active communities. This is a wonderful trend — one that will bring local control for these residents.
With Citihood comes Civic Duty so the next step is to elect a local governing body. Think about it and if you feel that you have skills and talents that would benefit the new city of Brookhaven, please toss your name in the hat. The qualification window is only 3 days next week!
