Latest on City Attorney; Arby's Closes?; Dunwoody Principal Reassigned

Okay, I jumped the gun in my last blog post when I wrote in the headline "Dunwoody Fires City Attorney."  As former councilman Robert Wittenstein pointed out in his comment to the post, the mayor cannot fire the city attorney, it must be done by majority vote of the city council.  I was under the erroneous assumption that the mayor had the necessary votes.
Monday night the council met, and voted 5-2 to defer a decision on Brian Anderson's future.  For the full story read The Crier.
It is not clear when council will take up the matter again.  However it is quite clear that at least two members of council (and perhaps even more) are not pleased with the job performance of the city attorney, which might include leaking of executive session material.  Expect the agenda item to resurface within the next 30 days after special investigator Bob Wilson's report is released (it will be the mostly widely read report in this city's young history).  Wilson did brief the council at an executive session Monday night prior to the public council meeting.  Anderson has denied leaking anything from an executive session.

Arby's Closes?

Recognize the building above?  It is the Williamsburg Arby's (next to McDonald's) - sans the signage.  Apparently the Arby's, which has been at this location for, at least, the 18 years that I've lived in Dunwoody, has closed up shop.  Frankly, I'm not too surprised, since I really didn't understand how Arby's could stay in business.  The store never seemed to have many or any customers!
Could this be the future site of a Chick-fil-A?  I wouldn't be surprised.  After all, Chick-fil-A wanted to open a store just around the corner in the Blockbuster building across the street from the old Ace Hardware, before running into zoning issues.  Obviously, zoning wouldn't be a problem at this location.  Stay tuned.

Dunwoody Principal Reassigned

By Dan Whisenhunt
Dunwoody Reporter
The outgoing chairwoman of the Dunwoody High School Council says a DeKalb County Schools official has informed parents that Principal Rodney Swanson will be reassigned at the end of this year.

Caren Morrison, chairwoman of the high school council, said area Assistant Superintendent Terry Segovis met with council members on Tuesday, May 15, and told them Swanson would leave at the end of June. Morrison said Segovis did not tell the council where Swanson will go or who will replace him. She said Segovis told them the school system is reassigning principals at various levels throughout the county.
