Come hear what happened at the pools, the latest on the zoning code, and other things going on with county and community!
ETHICS IN DEKALB?
DeKalb County government is in dire need of a mechanism to regain citizen trust. The following legislation will help turn the tide:
But it’s not a done deal. HB597 requires voters to approve the question, “Shall the Act be approved which revises the Board of Ethics for DeKalb County?” on election day, November 2015. Find out more found on the Blueprint DeKalb website and be sure to vote YES on November 3.
THANK YOU! ZONING CODE VOTE DELAYED AGAIN
The vote on DeKalb County’s new zoning code has been postponed. Thank you to everyone who has written the county commissioners and attended the meetings!
We strongly believe that the issues of appeal and standing for neighborhoods and communities need to be strengthened. Please call on your commissioners to today to ask them to continue to work with the task force to make this code better serve residents — and let us know if you’re interested in getting involved.
HELP STAMP OUT THE DEBT!
While we were ultimately unsuccessful in our efforts, we have made a substantial difference for our community, none more important than letting our collective voice be heard!
