Dunwoody’s New Kiosks

Friday, April 17th, 2009

The city of Dunwoody has approved a deal with a probation service that may end up offering Dunwoody residents more places to pay city fees.

The city’s  deal with Sentinel Offender Services, for now, only covers offender-paid probation service to Dunwoody. But, because the service allows payments at any of the Sentinel kiosks, the city of Dunwoody can use these kiosks to also collect non-court-related fees. City officials are reviewing Sentinel’s service and deciding where to place the kiosks.

There are many neighborhoods and pockets of this popular city, such as Dunwoody Club and Dunwoody Club Forest, Kingsley, Buckline Crossing, Dunwoody Village, Mt. Vernon Springs, Deerfield, Hunters Branch, Redfield, Hidden Branches, Brooke Farm, Tilly Mill, North Wellington, Meadowlake, Ravinia, Oxford Chase, Devinger, Wellesley, Winter’s Chapel and the area around Zabin Park.

Atlanta’s Stimulus Dollars

Sunday, April 12th, 2009

Fulton county’s cities of Sandy Springs, Milton and Johns Creek and Dekalb County’s Dunwoody will get smaller shares of  the Stimulus Package because they are newly formed cities.

The US Department of Justice is doling out money to almost every local law enforcement agency in the country. But the grant is based on three calendar years of Uniform Crime Reports, a statistical crime summary each city compiles annually. None of the three Fulton cities of Sandy Springs, Johns Creek or Milton, or Dekalb’s newly-formed Dunwoody, has been around for three years.

City and county officials project that the cities of Johns Creek, Milton and Sandy Springs will get a combined amount of $200,000. In contrast, Roswell is set to receive $98,000 and Alpharetta will receive $66,000. Fulton County and its other cities have applied for $5.6M in grant money. More money is coming from the Justice Department that these new cities can tap into. Georgia is set to receive another $36M, and almost 60% of that will be be going to local governments.
