After hearing from 25 people during public comments at today’s City Council meeting, the Stonecrest City Council deferred a vote on proposed changes to the city’s charter. The council plans to vote on the changes on Dec. 4.
Mayor Jason Lary is holding a public forum on Nov. 27, 6 p.m., at the Stonecrest Library ahead of the council’s vote. Lary said he plans to further explain the proposed changes.
If the resolution is adopted, it must still be approved by the DeKalb County legislators.
