Sandy Springs, Inc. Open For Business

Goodbye Fulton County, hello Sandy Springs.

Georgia’s newest city became a reality, ohhhhh, 10 minutes ago, culminating a year of political milestones: state legislative approval last winter, a cityhood referendum in the summer and city elections this fall.

This will cost Fulton County some $68m in tax revenue, that’s gonna sting…

    This will only hurt until Fulton County invades, er liberates Sandy Springs. I’ve heard rumors of the militia moving toward their borders already. :)

    However, Paulie, so far as I know, Sandy Springs has no oil. So it is safe from liberation.

    They deserve to govern themselves. Mostly morons run Atlanta and Fulton Co. I’m glad they got city-hood but now my Atlanta & Fulton Co taxes are going up.

    Forget that post. The new Sandy Springs officials just polevaulted themselves in to the moran category. Immediately after the 12:01 ceremony and being sworn in they already starting in on the adult businesses. I have been to two several times and did not witness/participate in a crime.
