Referring to the Redevelopment Powers agenda line item and included in the agenda packet, the City says, “On the 4th day of November 2014, an election will be held in all of the precincts of the City of Brookhaven. At the election there will be submitted to the qualified voters of the City of Brookhaven for their determination, the question of whether a local law enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Georgia, authorizing the City of Brookhaven to exercise all redevelopment and other powers under Chapter 44 of Title 36 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, known as the “Redevelopment Powers Law,” as such law may be amended from time to time, should be approved or rejected.”
Voters desiring to vote for the approval of such local law shall do so by voting “YES” and voters desiring to vote for the rejection of such local law shall do so by voting “NO.”
According to the city, the question will be listed on the ballot as follows:
“Shall the Act be approved which authorizes the City of Brookhaven to exercise all redevelopment powers allowed under the ‘Redevelopment Powers Law,’ as it may be amended from time to time?”
On February 25, 2014, the city adopted a resolution finding it to be in the best interest of the City to gain due authorization to exercise all of the redevelopment and other powers provided for under Chapter 44 of Title 36 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (the “Redevelopment Powers Law”).
