Dunwoody city officials plan to add a fifth part-time judge to the city’s Municipal Court.

The city announced March 21 it is looking to hire a new judge. Judges are appointed by the mayor and confirmed by Dunwoody City Council.

The court now has four part-time judges, city spokesman Bob Mullen said. The addition of the fifth would allow court officials “more flexibility,” he said.

The court handles violations that occur within the city limits of Dunwoody. The cases include traffic violations, DUIs and code enforcement.

Anyone interested in being considered for the post may send a resume and cover letter to City Clerk Sharon Lowery at Sharon.lowery@dunwoodyga.gov.
