As many of you know, I’ve been asked to Chair a subcommittee tasked with drawing a boundary between the proposed cities of LaVista Hills and Tucker in DeKalb County. There are five of us on the subcommittee: Representatives Barry Fleming, Mark Hamilton, Howard Mosby, Mary Margaret Oliver, and of course me.
This afternoon we are holding a public hearing at the Capitol so that we can hear from leaders of the two proposed cities as well as take some public comment. We’re expecting a large crowd, since every other hearing we’ve had on this subject has attracted large crowds. One reason we’re holding this hearing at the Capitol is so that it can be streamed over the internet and the recording archived for future viewing.

WHEN: Wednesday, December 3, 2014

To get an idea of all the proposed cities and annexations swirling around in DeKalb County, take a look at this map put together by the folks over at Decaturish. We have not been asked to solve all those issues, just the boundary dispute between the two proposed cites of Lavista Hills and Tucker.
