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
