Suppose you gave a party and no one came. That’s essentially what happened when the city of Dunwoody threw a breakfast at the Capital Grille Dec. 17 for the DeKalb County legislative delegation.

The intent was to discuss the city’s agenda for the legislative session that begins next month. Of the 19 representatives and seven senators invited, only two – state Sen. Fran Millar and state Rep. Tom Taylor, both from Dunwoody – showed up.

Millar and Taylor had discussed the agenda with council and with the Dunwoody Homeowners’ Association earlier in the month.

A city spokesman, Bob Mullen, said 18 city employees, contractors and council members, plus the two legislators, attended the event. He said breakfast was $20 per person.

The city’s agenda is highlighted by seeking ways to improve K-12 education through an independent city school system or a charter for the Dunwoody High School cluster of elementary schools and a middle school.

It also includes tougher legislation to crack down on “pill mills,” mandating the use of disappearing paint when the substance is used on lawns and an increase in the monthly fee for 9-1-1 service from $1.50 per month on cell phones to 1.75. The higher fee is to cover the cost of the service.
