Here's some more incorporation talk: Again, we're juggling with the idea of a city of DeKalb.
State Sen. Gloria Butler, D-Stone Mountain, will chair a Senate study committee on the incorporation of the city of DeKalb, according to Neighbor Newspapers.
From the story:
Butler will be joined by a group of seven committee members, consisting of fellow legislators and local officials from DeKalb County.
“Throughout the committee process, it is important to remember that the people who live in our cities and counties share an underlying love for their community,” said Butler. “That resource alone needs to be heavily considered when deciding the future of local municipalities. I’m honored that the lieutenant governor has selected me to serve as chair of this committee, and look forward to hearing feedback from the people of DeKalb County.”
