    Special Guests (Government representatives and candidates for office)

    Officer Bryant from Zone 3: Crime numbers are low in Capitol View, but high in Sylvan Hills. Police have increased patrol at Sylvan and Dill with discretionary units. A grant is allowing officers to work overtime.

    Laura Janssen, Fulton County Senior Asst. District Attorney: Deceased dogs are being found in Perkerson Park and in the industrial area around Avon and Allene. Authorities are looking into the source, possibly a dog fighting ring. Most likely this is street fighting which may be harder to bust because it’s unorganized and spontaneous. Any dog found will be sent for a necropsy to determine the cause of death.

    Claire Farley, Zone 3 Community Prosecutor: Prosecutor is encouraging neighbors to write letters to the county commissioners to stop cutting the budget for the department. December 3 is her meet & greet from 11:00am to 1:00pm. Please feel free to report criminal activity to the community prosecutor’s office.

    Joyce Sheperd, City Councilwoman for District 12: Saturday is the Fort McPherson meeting on zoning at 10:00am at Venetian Baptist Church. After January 1st, the Tax Allocation District will be rolling out. Councilwoman Sheperd also thanked everyone for reelecting her to the City Council.
