Georgia General Assembly - Bills Creating Dunwoody and Brookhaven

Cities in Georgia are an extension of state government and are thereby created and ultimately controlled by the General Assembly.  Current law requires a two year process for any bill enacting a new municipal corporation (city) where a bill for incorporation is introduced in the first year of a two year session, after which the organizing committee will develop the feasibility study and the policies and regulations to be incorporated into the final city charter.  Assuming the bill passes in the 2nd year of the session, only the community within the proposed city boundaries will vote for approval.

Attached are the final bills passed by the General Assembly creating the City of Dunwoody and the City of Brookhaven.

The City of Dunwoody, Senate Bill 82, 2007-2008, sponsored by Sen. Dan Weber

The City of Brookhaven, House Bill 636, 2011-2012, sponsored by Rep. Mike Jacobs
