Dunwoody Moving Forward on Spending Plan

Dunwoody could see more sworn officers; stable property tax rate. Meeting is set for 7 p.m. Monday.

The Dunwoody Police force – which has laid out a plan to increase staff over the next several years – could gain four more officers in the city's new spending plan.

The budget is a $27.2 million plan. General funds to run city services are $23.3 million, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The spending plan would dole out more than $1.5 million for a network of public parks in a private planned development – Project Renaissance – on the city’s eastern Georgetown area, the report said.

The property tax rate is projected to remain stable, according to the proposal.

The city will discuss tweaks to the budget at it’s meeting Monday. The regular session begins at 7 p.m. and will be the second reading of the budget.

  • Emergency 911 had $27,200 for communication charges not used.
  • Project Renaissaince used $3.75 million in prior years HOST dollars. The money will need to be transferred to the capital projects fund.
  • The police used just more than $2,100 in seized funds for allowed.  
  • Meanwhile HOST reserve funds could be used for some high-dollar items; $543,000 for the next Renaissance land purchase, $113,00 for a surveillance camera in Brook Run Park, $750,000 for Tilly Mill Road/North Peachtree Road construction, $250,000 for Vermack and Womack road construction and a $100,000 partial enterprise fund for the design and engineering of a future City Hall.
