State Sen. Brandon Beach (R-Alpharetta) prefiles cityhood bill

State Sen. Brandon Beach (R-Alpharetta) on Nov. 18 prefiled a bill to incorporate the City of Buckhead City, a step in getting it considered by the General Assembly in the next session. The co-sponsors of SB 324 include Senators Greg Dolezal (R-Cumming), Burt Jones (R-Jackson) and Randy Robertson (R-Cataula). Jones is also running for lieutenant governor on next year’s ballot, when the cityhood question might appear as well. No legislator representing Buckhead or in the Atlanta delegations is supporting cityhood.
