Another Milton City Council election will take place this Fall.
The redistricting issue has almost been as talked about as any recent Milton City Council election with "pros" and "cons" being all over the board. This person leans this way; the other the exact opposite.
Talks of consequences and assumptions abound regarding traffic, gas prices, and even claims of racism.
Some have called on the Milton City Council to speak out regarding Fulton County School Board's approach to shuffling students. Mayor Joe Lockwood was actually called a "bigot" in a comment left on Accessmilton.com regarding his vocalization of support for a particular plan.
However, the city's elected officials have no jurisdiction regarding public school placement as the FCBOE is not required by law to follow city lines or listen to the city's governing body.
Regardless, many citizens are still quite bothered stating they want to "vote them all out" this upcoming Fall due to their assumed lack of action.
With all that in mind, what do you think? Do you find Milton's City Council at some fault regarding the redistricting issue or do you believe their hands are tied? Do you believe that city councils should have discretion on school placement or should it all continue to be left up to the Fulton County Board of Education?
