Brookhaven is close to inking agreements with DeKalb County for temporary police and parks services.
At a Brookhaven City Council work session March 12, City Manager Marie Garrett told council members that DeKalb County has agreed to continue parks and recreation services for the city over a period of 11 months at a cost of $400,000.
Interim City Attorney Bill Riley said he negotiated with the county to provide police services for $525,000 per month.
Riley said the intergovernmental agreement calls for the county’s police coverage to end June 30. Afterward, Brookhaven’s own police department will take over jurisdiction.
