Peace Proposition

New, 1 comment

Ceasar Mitchell, Atlanta City Council president, is making a bold proposal to end the "hazy maze of discord" between Atlanta Public Schools and the Beltline — and he's putting your money where his mouth is. Mitchell vows to ask fellow councilors to pull $13.7 million from city reserves and settle the current past due amount in the APS/Beltline contractual dispute. (Random context: QB Matt Ryan's services cost $4 million more than that this year). Mitchell is alarmed that "supporters of the Beltline have been pitted against supporters of our schools, and parents like myself who believe in the promise of the Beltline have been put in the untenable position of being forced to choose."
