Sabra Stevens Recognized as Employee of the Year

Please join us in congratulating and thanking Sabra Stevens for the terrific job she so consistently does. She was recognized today at the Sunrise Rotary Club as the City of Dahlonega Employee of the Year.

“Sabra Stevens is the face and voice of City Hall Dahlonega to much of the world. She does an excellent job welcoming and assisting citizens who visit or call and cheerfully and ably helps with every form of local government question. Sabra is always pleasant, even with those who are not particularly kind to her. She bears the brunt of much unjust criticism without ever complaining. She is simultaneously professional, personable, knowledgeable, capable, thorough, tactful, patient and compassionate. Her quiet demeanor is both an example and an encouragement to those who work with her. It is my pleasure to commend to you the 2017 Dahlonega Employee of the Year, Sabra Stevens." -William E. Schmid, City Manager

 
City of Dahlonega Welcomes New City Marshal

The City of Dahlonega is pleased to announce the hiring of Jefferson "Jeff" D. Branyon as its next City Marshal, which is a historic position which is being reactivated. Jeff is well known and widely respected in the north Georgia law enforcement community having served positions with Clarke, Hall and Lumpkin counties, the Georgia Bureau of Investigations and Gwinnett County. He leaves Gwinnett after managing its Crime Scene Investigations Unit for seven years. Jeff is a graduate of the University of Georgia and is currently attending the Georgia Law Enforcement Command College Executive Program at Columbus State University, where he is pursuing his Masters in Law Enforcement Administration.


The Dahlonega Marshal serves to enforce City Ordinances and coordinate with and support Public Safety efforts of other local, area and state law enforcement agencies. Historically, the position has existed since the 1830s when it was first held by William Pierce Price, Sr, father of the founder of North Georgia Agricultural College. A long line of law enforcement officers have served the City in this capacity. As examples James Harbison served for 25 years or more before 1903 and Sheriff Stacy Jarrard held the position prior to becoming Sheriff.


Jeff and his wife of 26 years, Jodi, have three children of college and high school age. Jeff's interests outside work include coaching mountain biking and cycling. Please join us in making Jeff and his family welcome to the community.

An Open Letter to The Citizens of Dahlonega October 6, 2017

An Open Letter to The Citizens of Dahlonega

Dear Dahlonega Residents:

This letter relates to a flyer dated September 25, 2017, recently actively distributed in Dahlonega to tenants of Dahlonega Rents, LLC with the heading "Possibility of Rent Increase Notice". The "Notice" perpetuates a false rumor of several months ago which appears to have originated from a political campaign flyer. Both are shown in the accompanying link. This letter is offered to make sure the general public is aware of some basic facts.

While the City encourages free speech and lively debate, the City categorically denies the assertion(s) made in the Notice. Neither the current Council of five, nor the previous Council of seven, "has discussed the possibility of placing a bed tax on those that rent to students", as described in the flyer. Not only has such a discussion never occurred, no such authority exists under Georgia law.

The one time this topic was mentioned before the Council was in a public meeting April 20, 2017. Approved minutes of the meeting reflect, "Council Member Norton said he would like to take this time to clarify that lodging tax does not apply to student housing. Finance Director Marlowe stated lodging tax only applies to rentals that are less than 30 days." There was no discussion on this point by the Council prior to or since Mr. Norton's clarifying comment.

The parties involved are encouraged to reconsider, revise and correct their statements. Each is also invited to call or meet privately with me at any time, or ask questions of the Council in the citizen comment portion of every regular City Council meeting. None of the three involved has used either option. There is not and will not be a bed tax for student housing, either on campus or off. Georgia hotel/motel taxes apply to hotels, motels and bed and breakfasts for stays of less than thirty days.

Please contact me, if further clarification on this or any other issue is needed.

Sincerely,

William E. Schmid
City Manager
