Should Buckhead Become a County?

New, 1 comment

An idea for Buckhead County came up during a recent Buckhead Council of Neighborhoods meeting. Partially motivated by the North Atlanta High School controversy, the new county creation would allow the neighborhood its own school system and board, as well as a separate police force. It won't be easy: creating a county is a lengthy process that would involve a vote. Who knew Georgia's constitution allowed only 159 counties? [Reporter Newspapers, WSBTV]
