Dunwoody City Councilwoman Adrian Bonser has filed an ethics complaint against the mayor and other members of City Council, alleging that they conducted business improperly and attempted to force her out of office.
In her letter of complaint, Bonser said the council held an inappropriate closed meeting to discuss the sale of the 16 acre property known as the “PVC Farm” in February.
“The executive session law in effect at the time only allowed an executive session to be held on the topic of ‘future acquisition of real estate,’ not disposition of real estate,” Bonser wrote.
The Feb. 3 executive session is the same meeting that resulted in a previous ethics complaint against Bonser. An investigation commissioned by Mayor Mike Davis concluded Bonser leaked confidential information from the executive session about the Georgetown redevelopment project now known as Project Renaissance. Bonser, who has denied being the source of the leak, faces a hearing in front of the city’s ethics board.
Bonser also states that the public notice required by state law was not provided ahead of a May 29 meeting. Bonser said in the letter that “the mayor and council met on May 29, 2012, without proper notice, prior publishing of its agenda, and conducted business without a public vote.”
Bonser’s complaint also accuses Davis of asking her to resign from the council before the investigative report was complete, “using taxpayer funds to misuse the Board of Ethics and Code of Ethics for his political agenda.”
