WABE Story on Prefiled Legislation Addressing Cityhood

Clearing Hurdles

A State Representative from DeKalb County has "prefiled" legislation, House Bill 22, that, if enacted, would make it much more difficult to create new cities DeKalb.  The text of House Bill 22 can be read by clicking here.

Regardless of your feeling about creating a new city in northern DeKalb County, a recent WABE news story about the bill is worth a listen.  You can hear the story by visiting the following page: WABE Story.

After you have read the bill and listened to the story, please share your comments below with your neighbors.

As a reminder, there will be a pro/con panel on the cityhood issue this Tuesday, January 8, at 7 p.m. at the Oak Grove United Methodist Church.  A flyer with details about the  event can be seen below in the post entitled: "Open Thread: What's on Your Mind for Tuesday."

Hope to see you Tuesday!
