Ethics process boils over on Dunwoody City Council | www.myajc.com

Dunwoody, founded five years ago to escape constant bickering with DeKalb County, finds itself embroiled in some internal feuding of its own.

Dunwoody leaders are dealing with another in a series of ethics complaints that have plagued the city since last year. So far, taxpayers have shelled out more than $100,000 for investigations, attorneys and mediation services since the flurry began.

On Monday, City Councilwoman Adrian Bonser, while facing an ethics complaint herself, filed ethics charges against attorney for the city Lenny Felgin and Ethics Board hearing officer Jennifer Keaton. Bonser said the two violated the ethics code by accepting and prosecuting an ethics charge against her that exceeded the statute of limitations.

She also accused the mayor and other city leaders of ignoring open meetings laws by discussing land sales behind closed doors and using the ethics ordinance to target opponents.
