The Budget in Dunwoody

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

The Dunwoody City council will vote on their new budget on October 29; expanding their police force is one of the items on their agenda. It is believed that they will add four officers, or an additional 20% of their current force. This 20% also corresponds with the 20% increase in property crimes since last year; major crimes were reported to have decreased since last year. The Council is also considering giving a four (4%) increase to the city’s employees, mostly police officers and court employees.

Atlanta in the Fall

Atlanta in the Fall








The Reporter Newspaper reported the best places to find Fall colors in Atlanta:

  • Morgan Falls Overlook Park, Sandy Springs
  • Powers Island unit of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation area, Sandy Springs
  • Murphey Candler Lake, Brookhaven
  • Tanyard Creek Park, Buckhead
  • Dunwoody Nature Center, Dunwoody

With the exception of the Powers Island of the Chattahoochee River National Rec area, all are free! Powers Island will cost you $3.00 for a parking pass. Of course, the real freebie in Atlanta, is outside your front door/neighborhood: take a walk and see how beautiful this city is in the Fall!
