North DeKalb Senior Center Opens

North DeKalb Senior Center opens its doors to DeKalb residents Thursday, Dec. 1. The facility is located at 3393 Malone Drive in Chamblee.

“This center will serve as a welcoming gathering place where area seniors can learn new skills and participate in exciting activities,” said DeKalb Interim CEO Lee May. “DeKalb’s Senior Services and Facilities Management departments worked together to open a top-notch building that the community can use for years to come.”

North DeKalb Senior Center is the last of three senior centers recently constructed in the county. The center features computer classes, exercise classes and more. The facility has an aerobic exercise room, multipurpose classroom, arts and crafts room, library, billiards room, game lobby, computer classroom, full-service catering kitchen, two outdoor patios and a state-of-the-art audio visual system. The $5.2 million center was completed using federal funds from U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development as well as Community Development Block Grants.

“The Community Development department set a vision years ago to fulfill a dream held by many of the ‘Bridge Builder Seniors’ and the late Commissioner Lou Walker,” said Allen Mitchell, director of Community Development. “We are proud of this work and the excitement generated by our DeKalb seniors about their new facilities.”

Statement on the Burrell Ellis Supreme Court Decision

The county attorney has advised that Mr. Ellis' appeal to the Georgia Supreme Court is not final until the time passes for motions for reconsideration which could be filed by either party.  

The Georgia Supreme Court has ordered that such motions must be filed by Dec. 5, 2016. 

During this interim period, the county attorney is evaluating the effect of the Supreme Court's order in the event that no reconsideration motions are filed or the Supreme Court denies motions filed by either or both parties.

DeKalb Receives Authority to Clean Up Brannon Hill

Property owners of destroyed or fire-damaged buildings in the Brannon Hill Condominium complex have 60 days to demolish and clean up those structures, or DeKalb County can step in.

“This is a big step in the right direction,” said DeKalb Interim CEO Lee May. “This order puts Brannon Hill’s owners on notice to improve the property or DeKalb County has the authority to step in and take action. We have been working diligently for years to cleaning up Brannon Hill and other blighted communities.”

For more than a decade DeKalb has worked to address blight conditions in Brannon Hill Condominium, located at 1000 Old Hampton Dr., Clarkston.

These unsafe structures and mounting debris have created serious safety hazards, and some of the sites have been used as a dumping ground by privately-owned businesses.

Superior Court Judge Gregory Adams signed an order on Nov. 15 granting DeKalb County authorization to demolish and clean up specified buildings at Brannon Hills Condominium that were destroyed or seriously damaged by fire in the event that owners do not complete the work themselves. This order does not allow the county to clean up the entire property, only specified areas damaged or destroyed by fire.

At the end of the 60-day period, the properties will be inspected. If it is determined that the property owners have not complied with the judge’s order, DeKalb County is authorized to clean up the property and file a lien to recover the costs associated with its cleanup efforts.

The Superior Court order is the result of a July 2016 action filed by the county’s law department seeking to require the property owners to demolish and clean up specified burned or dilapidated structured.

DeKalb Fire Rescue Receives Improved Rating for Fire Protection and Suppression Capabilities

DeKalb County Fire Rescue Department has been awarded its highest rating in its 79-year history of providing organized fire suppression services to the residences and businesses in the county.

The department received an upgraded Class 2/2X rating—and an improvement over the previous Class 3 rating that the county received during its last review in 1989. This rating places DeKalb County in the top 3 percent of all fire protection areas in the United States.

“Our first responders in the DeKalb Fire Rescue Department work diligently to protect our county as evidenced by this rating improvement,” said DeKalb Interim CEO Lee May. “This rating shows that DeKalb is one of the safest counties in America in the area of fire suppression.”

This new rating is a result of a recent review of the county’s Public Protection Classification by the Insurance Services Office (ISO). 

“This rating by the ISO speaks to the hard work and dedication of the men and women of DeKalb County Fire Rescue and their commitment to remain in a constant state of improvement,” said DeKalb County Fire Rescue Chief Darnell Fullum. 

ISO ratings are based on four areas within the county: 
•    Fire suppression capabilities of DeKalb County Fire Rescue
•    Department of Watershed Managements water delivery system
•    DeKalb E911 network
•    Community risk reduction programs, including fire prevention, public safety education and fire investigations.

ISO currently rates more than 48,000 fire protection areas in the United States. Ratings under the ISO system range from 1, which indicates superior fire protection, down to 10. Many insurance companies use ISO ratings as a factor to determine homeowner and business fire insurance premiums.

Nancy Jester Water Billing Crisis Update 

Following Commissioner Nancy Jester’s call for a moratorium on the disconnection of residential water accounts, DeKalb Interim CEO Lee May has issued a moratorium on the disconnection of residential water accounts that have been contested through the Utility Customer Operations Center. 

Water customers who believe their bill is in error should notify the Utility Customer Operations Center at 774 Jordan Lane in Decatur,

or call (404) 371-3000.  

*** Even if you have already contacted Commissioner Nancy Jester – or any commissioner, iCEO Lee May is asking that everyone call this number ***

BE ADVISED – You can expect long wait times on your call.

A new Customer Assurance Team has been assembled and dedicated to helping residents work through billing disputes.  Those that report a billing error will have their account reviewed by the team and an independent third party will mediate issues should the customer want further review of team findings. 

There will be no water service disconnections for accounts with balances in dispute and have paid their average bill through the end of 2016. 

Commissioner Nancy Jester’s Chief of Staff joined iCEO Lee May’s Chief of Staff this past Thursday for a visit to the actual call area meeting with onsite staff and observing real time calls.

Commissioner Nancy Jester appreciates and supports these initial efforts by iCEO Lee May.  They are professional, constructive, and serious. However, Commissioner Jester remains concerned about both the wait time for callers and the customer service and accuracy of those in the call center.

It is essential that iCEO Lee May expedite both hiring and training for those receiving calls.

Commissioner Nancy Jester has recommended iCEO Lee May authorize DeKalb County Commissioners and their senior staff be allowed to volunteer shifts and that the iCEO and his senior staff work shifts.

Additionally, Nancy Jester recommends that iCEO Lee May shift senior managers from other non-public safety departments into the call center during this crisis.

Commissioner Nancy Jester has recommended that iCEO Lee May send daily reports to the Board of Commissioners on this crisis. 

Commissioner Nancy Jester has recommended that iCEO Lee May convene regular meetings at the senior staff level for Board of Commissioners staff to be briefed by senior Administration staff.

Commissioner Nancy Jester supports the establishment of a Citizens Task Force on Water Billing Issues and has invited the iCEO and Members of the Board of Commissioners to join her in appointing one person per district and allowing the iCEO to make an appointment.
