The event is set to begin at 6 pm on Tuesday night at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia.


Dunwoody Mayor Mike Davis is set to present his annual State of the City address on Tuesday, Feb. 19, at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia Hotel in Dunwoody.

Davis said this year's address will focus on new goals and opportunities for the city in 2013.

"Our vision for the future is to implement the plans and ideas of our community and help Dunwoody become an even better place to live, work and play.”

This year’s festivities kick off with a public reception beginning at 6 pm, followed by the address scheduled for 7 pm.

Guest speaker for the event is Bryan Tate, CEO and founder of Digitel.

The annual event is made possible through donations of event sponsors. This year’s Platinum and VIP sponsors are Jacobs and Northside Hospital.

This should be a great event tomorrow night. We have come a long way in four years. The event will be well attended with 25 tables that are sponsoring the event.

Rob thinks I will not attend, but I will. Rob, please suggest a way I can prove my attendance at the event tomorrow evening. If you plan to attend let me know and I will provide a signal as to my presence.

Rob, the event is free but the drinks are not. based on your consumption habits $40 should cover you for two hours. I recall beers costing $6 or $7 last year. The sponsors can only do so much nowadays.

Being new to the city, I pray for our leaders, not chastise them.

Rob, I will be there and will take a photo for you, then post it here to this story. I hope to join you for a scotch. I am wondering if my extra drink tickets from taste of Dunwoody will have any value at the State of the City address.

Can someone please tell me when we can 'envision' a Dunwoody Animal Control? To call Chatcom. and be told "call Dekalb we do not have officers/man power for that" a half a decade after becoming a city is a joke! We became a city to provide ourselves with better services than Dekalb was offering us. So why are we still using them for animal control? Oh and when I did hang up & call Dekalb, they literally laughed and asked "doesn't Dunwoody have their own animal control?" and then I had to wait 20 more minutes for an animal control officer to return my call just to see what the problem was. Wonder how long I would have waited for them to actually show up and help me versus an animal control right here in my 12.1 square mile town? Come on Dunwoody, we need animal control!

Me2NoU2Not... Dunwoody will most likely never operate its own animal control due to the costs. Even our sister city Sandy Springs defers to Fulton County for animal control. Both Fulton and Dekalb out source the services to a private company "Lifeline". I believe this company wants to have a a no kill policy. Contact your county commissioner if your issues persist.

Really? Are you telling me we cannot afford to offer the same services our sister city DORAVILLE provides it's citizens? I do not expect Dunwoody to run an animal shelter (as you say those services can be deferred to Dekalb) but a simple service of an animal control truck/officer seems not only a reasonable request, but a necessary must after all this time as a city. Going by the police blotters, it is obvious we need this service and cannot depend on Dekalb. Come on Dunwoody step up & provide us the promised services of a real city & dare to be (GASP) better than Sandy Springs at something for once.
