Dunwoody Charter Commission Meeting @ Online via Zoom
Aug 31 @ 6:00 pm

See the link above for the agenda and instructions to attend virtually.

To date, the Charter Commission has recommended:

  • Eliminating the tax millage rate cap established when Dunwoody incorporated.  Before incorporation, DeKalb county raised tax rates with no voter say at all.
  • Allowing city council to raise taxes without a voter referendum; Dunwoody was incorporated with this check and balance to require voter input before tax rates could change
  • Adding greater powers to the Mayor's office, eliminating the weak-mayor system that prevents potential autocratic abuses

Hybrid Special Called City Council Meeting @ Dunwoody City Hall and Online

DHA has retained an attorney to represent the interests of the homeowners on the western borders of Dunwoody Village.  The owner of the Shops of Dunwoody complex has threatened to sue the City if they are not permitted to encroach on the residential neighbors.  The terms of zoning are being analyzed by all parties before a decision gets made.
