Fulton and DeKalb weren’t aware their approval was needed:
Several Fulton and DeKalb commissioners said Grady officials only recently alerted them that their approval is needed, and they are moving quickly. Some commissioners said they learned about it when they read it in 1he Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
In addition, the AJC has obtained a copy of an internal county memo giving legal advice to the DeKalb Commission, which raises nine additional issues related to the lease agreement.
The Jan. 30 memo calls for DeKalb and Fulton to have power to approve the Grady budget, and that the contract between Grady and two counties be renegotiated before DeKalb signs off on the lease.
