The Sandy Springs Charter Review Commission on May 17 holds its second public hearing to see what changes residents think should be made in the document that spells out city organization and powers.

The public hearing is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. in the City Council chambers at Sandy Springs City Hall, 7840 Roswell Road.

Only two residents spoke at the commission’s first hearing, held April 26.

“We were lonely,” Commission Chairman Rusty Paul told members of the Sandy Springs/Perimeter Chamber of Commerce on May 16.

Members of the committee are to review the charter and then to report to state lawmakers on any needed changes.
