The Dunwoody City Council will consider on first read approving an ordinance to raise its hotel/motel tax from 5 percent to 8 percent at its Monday, Nov. 13 meeting along with a list of proposed trails and parks projects to use with the new revenue. The meeting is at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 41 Perimeter Center East.
The city will also hold a public meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 15, at 6 p.m. at City Hall for residents to learn more about the proposed projects.
The latest Perimeter Park plan commissioned by the Perimeter Community Improvement Districts. Funding the park with hotel motel tax funds is set to be considered by the City Council.
