May’s recommendations include a tax rate decrease – the first adjustment downward in eleven years (since 2004).
According to ICEO May, the budget includes an increase in the budgetary reserve, body cameras for police officers, and an increase in funding for firefighters and sheriff deputies.

Currently, the DeKalb County Animal Shelter is under pressure from having too many dogs, and they’re working to get as many out of there as possible and into permanent or foster homes so they don’t have to euthanize for space.
Little baby Ellison is not free, as he’s still only four months old, but if you’re looking for a puppy, he’s a winner. The little Lab mix was almost out the door when a physical exam revealed that he has a heart murmur (grade 3-4 out of 6), so his adopters decided not to take him. Now Ellison is fully vetted (neutered and microchipped!) with nowhere to go.
Merci, above and below, is a Pointer mix who has been given the job of office dog, which in most shelters is reserved for a calm, loving dog who does well meeting new people. She loves to cuddle in your lap, roll in freshly cut grass, and take lots of naps. She is a pretty laid back girl who would love to be your new best friend. She has tons of personality that she can’t wait for you to discover.
Here’s a video of this sweet dog.
Hadley is a 3-4 year old purebred Boxer boy who is all wiggles and goofiness. If Hadley’s smushy face and goofy personality don’t win you over immediately, his eagerness to make humans happy surely will! He is a handsome Boxer boy that is always happy to see you! This boy seems to already know his basic manners and would love for you to teach him some fun tricks! Hadley gets along great with other dogs and probably wouldn’t mind having a dog friend in his new home.
Gabriella is a sweet 2-year old Redbone Coonhound who can’t wait to show off her fantastic grin and super cute happy dance to you and your family! She is a wiggly, active girl who would love to become your workout buddy. She dreams of playing fetch in the yard, walking around your neighborhood, and maybe even playing scent games! Gabriella already knows how to sit and takes treats very gently. She’d love to learn more commands! If you think Gabriella is your perfect match, come down to DeKalb Animal Services and meet her!
