The House DeKalb County Cityhood Subcommittee will meet Wednesday, December 3, 2014 from 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. in the Coverdell Legislative Office Building. At this meeting the committee will hear testimony from representatives from the Tucker and LaVista Hills cityhood organizations. Following the testimony, the committee will take public comment. We anticipate that this will be the first of several hearings regarding cityhood and annexations in the near future.
This hearing regarding the boundary issues for LaVista Hills and Tucker will be broadcast over the internet so you can watch if you cannot attend in person. Beginning at 1 PM, you can go to house.ga.gov, click on “video broadcasts” and that will take you to a link to the live stream of the hearing.
We know that this is a very difficult time for most residents to attend the meeting. However, you can still make your voice heard. Emails to the House members on the committee expressing your desire for inclusion in the City of LaVista Hills are important.
