At Tuesday night's city council meeting in Dunwoody, former DeKalb CEO Vernon Jones spoke at public comment.  Jones spoke during public comment in favor of keeping the dog park at Brook Run and encouraged council to work with both sides to reach an agreement.

The dog park at Brook Run is still the center of a huge issue for the city council.  There have been four options discussed recently for the future of this park 'amenity'.  Councilman Heneghan has posted public comment on the dog park from a recent meeting HERE.  A true gem in the video is when a Dog Park Posse member (who does NOT live in Dunwoody and does NOT pay taxes here but MIGHT be buying snacks or gas in Dunwoody) refers to a person (who DOES live in Dunwoody and who DOES pay taxes and who HAS suffered from the poor placement of the dog park) as "vocal nasty people".  And that's not the first time we've heard a comment like this.  The Dog Park Posse doe
