The City of Decatur, GA is proposing an Annexation. They would like to add parts of unicorporated Dekalb County to their tax base. The problem with that is they are not informing the residents in the proposed areas. There is a public meeting on Monday December 1st, 2008 at City Hall in downtown Decatur at 7:30 p.m. The new City Hall is on McDonough Street across from Chick-Fil-A and next to Eddie's Attic.
Are you in the proposed Annexation area? See Annexation map. If you are in the proposed Areas 1 and 2 at the top of the Map near North Decatur Rd and Scott Blvd, make your voice heard on this Survey and at the December 1st meeting. The State Representative for this area is Mary Margaret Oliver. She needs to know your thoughts on this.
11Alive news came to my subdivision tonight after I contacted them to let them know about the Proposed Annexation plan. We have delivered flyers in the neighborhood to let people know what was going on. Most of the people we spoke to had no idea about it. When I asked the City Manager's office what was being done to notify the people in the proposed Annexation areas, I was told it was on the City's website. People who live in the proposed Annexation areas have very little reason to go to the City's website, they are not even residents of the City of Decatur. Don't get me wrong, I love the City of Decatur. I shop there and go to the restaurants there. I also volunteer my time for the City of Decatur's events. I just think that the City should be doing something to notify the residents whose taxes could double with Annexation. This will create a hardship for many homeowners.
The news story will run on Monday morning December 1, between 5 and 7 a.m, probably closer to 6:30 a.m., but no guarantees on that. I just want the residents in the proposed Annexation areas informed.
