How to Get Involved

There are many different ways to get involved in your local government.

Come to a Meeting

The City Council holds meetings on the second and fourth Monday of each month, unless otherwise noted. There are opportunities for public comment to directly share your thoughts, opinions, and suggestions with the City Council at every meeting. These meetings are also where much of the city’s business is decided so it is an excellent way to stay in touch with what is going on in the city. If you cannot make it to a meeting, the city also live streams the meeting as they happen, and archived copies of past meetings are also available on the website along with meeting minutes, summaries, and agendas.

Volunteer on a Local Board, Commission, or Committee
The city is always looking for enthusiastic residents to take an active role in city government. Dunwoody has 14 different volunteer groups that assist with various municipal functions, from reviewing zoning concerns to weighing in on development issues. Each of these groups deals with a unique aspect of local government and can provide a direct way to engage with the work of the city.

Contact the Mayor and Council 
The Mayor and Council encourage citizen interaction. Each member of the City Council is readily available through email and most days the Mayor can found at City Hall providing input and support. 

 

Attend a Town Hall or District Connection Meeting

Periodically throughout the year, the Mayor and Council host various Town Hall and District Connection meetings. These meetings and events offer residents and community members an opportunity to hear about projects and initiatives going on in the city and provide attendees with a chance to ask questions to their elected representatives.
