From Commissioner Jeff Rader - District 2, DeKalb County, Georgia: Auditor to Review County Government, by Commissioner Jeff Rader. Those who follow local government know that the DeKalb County's Board of Commissioners (BOC) is responsible for reviewing the budget and approving ordinances. What is not well known is that the BOC also has the responsibility to review the county government's operations.
October 25, 2010, Dear Citizens Concerned about PDK Airport Expansion: Congratulations! In response to your massive outpouring of e-mail messages and calls in just a single day, the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners has apparently decided to defer a vote on the controversial 2010 PDK Airport Layout Plan for thirty more days (this will be their fourth deferral of the vote).
From PDK Watch, October 24, 2010: Dear Community Leaders, I am taking the liberty of sending you a very time-sensitive ACTION ALERT about an upcoming vote on Tuesday morning by the DeKalb Board of Commissioners that could expand size of jets allowed to use PDK Airport. If this is a concern to you or to others in your neighborhood associations, I would welcome your sharing this information to your e-mail lists or otherwise circulating as widely as you can.

From a neighbor: Regarding a tricycle that was removed from along Vistamont Drive on Sunday morning, Oct 17, around 10:00 am - it may have been picked up by someone who thought it was out for disposal (although it was definately not next to the curb). It is a red
"classic" RadioFlyer tricycle, and the two-year old rider would very much like to have it back home. If you inadvertently picked it up on the way through the neighborhood, please return to where it was found.
