    Q:How can we get our roads paved? Our roads are not as nice as East Point
    A: Atlanta doesn’t have as much money to fix all these things. There is transportation tax that may give a portion of the money to this. So if you vote yes for this referendum then that may give us some money.

    Splash pad is still on schedule despite vandalism. Want neighborhood to adopt this. Willing to pay a stipend to have someone adopt this splash pad. Want someone to know how it works. Eyes and ears of the park has to be in the community, police can’t watch all the time. Looking into a camera to monitor during construction. We need to organize around this right away while under construction. Need to have a community contact that is available that they can trust.

    Coyotes caught in Emma Miliken park. Park should re-open May 1st.

    Looking at putting cameras on Dill Ave and in problem areas.
