Dunwoody Council to Meet Tuesday

Council to discuss outside legal counsel for ethics board and a transfer of property for "Project Renaissance."

The Dunwoody City Council meets Tuesday night to discuss hiring an attorney for the city's ethics board and to talk about the execution of "Project Renaissance."

The council discussed hiring an attorney to handle an ethics complaint against Councilwoman Adrian Bonser at its last meeting, but did not make a final decision.

The city's legal counsel has recommended that the ethics board have its own legal counsel and have recommended hiring attorney Richard Carothers for the job.

The idea for the outside legal counsel is to keep the ethics board from any legal conflicts while it proceeds with looking onto the complaint about Bonser.

The city council is also expected to talk about transferring the 16-acre 'PVC Farm' property to a newly established city urban redevelopment agency.

The transfer would be a first step in John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods coming into develop the property.  

The council meets for a work session at 6 p.m. and convenes for its regular meeting at 7 p.m.

After viewing the video from last nights meeting, I have one question: Do we really want this to be taped for all to see? It really made our city look bad!

Lack of transparency for these proceedings would make our city look and be worse. One difference between good governance and bad is the former leans toward light, 'best practices,' and prudent management. The latter leans in the opposite direction.

I really don`t think you of all people should be using the word "transparency" considering the info I read about you on one of the newspaper message boards.
