DK Development Authority: Walker resigns, ‘stimulus’ draft released

DK Development Authority: Walker resigns, 'stimulus' draft released
August 19, 2009 --

Gene Walker has resigned as chairman of the DeKalb County Development Authority, two months after an uproar over his dual role as a member of the authority and the DeKalb Board of Education. Walker stepped down just days after the authority released a draft of guidelines for issuing property tax breaks as incentives for new development in DeKalb. The guidelines give the DeKalb County Commission a seat at the table, but make no mention of the Board of Education.
