 Quorum of the Brookhaven City Council to conduct special meeting

Brookhaven, GA, Oct. 20, 2017 – In accordance with the Georgia Open Meetings Act, the City of Brookhaven announces a special meeting of the Brookhaven City Council at Blackburn Park, 3493 Ashford Dunwoody Rd on Saturday, Oct. 28 at 9:30 a.m.

The special meeting involves a friendly soccer match, at the invitation of the Consul General of Mexico, F. Javier Díaz.   No official action is expected to be taken by the Council, other than to win the match and not to pop any knees or hamstrings.

Confirmed competitors include Brookhaven Mayor John Ernst and City Councilmembers Joe Gebbia, Bates Mattison and John Park; representatives from the General Consulate of Mexico and City of Brookhaven employees. 

“This as a great opportunity to strengthen ties with our neighbors at the Mexican Consulate and promote fellowship among city staff,” said Brookhaven Mayor John Ernst.

“Brookhaven is seeking to build good relations with representatives of foreign countries and our immigrant population,” Joe Gebbia, District 4 Councilmember, agreed. “This is just the beginning of what we have planned ever since we became a Welcoming City.”

The General Consulate of Mexico invited Brookhaven representatives to participate in Binational Health Week where the goal is to improve the health and well-being of the Latin American migrant population in the United States under the leadership of the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs through the Institute of Mexicans Abroad and the Consular Network in the United States.
