DeKalb County residents interested in creating a new city of Briarcliff will attend a meeting hosted by county officials this Wednesday, July 2.

DeKalb County CEO Lee May created the DeKalb Operations Task Force to study the effects of creating new cities on county services. The Task Force held its first meeting on June 5.

The goal of the task force is developing a set of recommendations prior to the 2015 session of the state General Assembly.

It’s widely expected that the advocates of creating the new cities of Briarcliff, Lakeside and Tucker will be pushing for the legislature to put their proposals on the ballot.  The bills for those cities didn’t pass in the most recent session. The session was shorter than usual, due to the new elections calendar, and the maps for each of the cities overlapped, creating competition among the three groups.

The Operations Task Force meeting begins at 6 pm and will be held at Maloof Auditorium located at 1300 Commerce Drive in Decatur.

“Briarcliff will have representation at this meeting,” an announcement from the Briarcliff Initiative says. “Please attend if you can. If you have time to stick around afterwards, our group will be assembling outside the auditorium and coordinating a local place to grab a drink, debrief about the meeting, Task Force status and cityhood status.”
