If a proposed annexation into Brookhaven comes to fruition, it will mean the city will need to hire five more police officer and another code enforcement officer, according to a service delivery report released by the city.

Earlier this month Brookhaven received formal annexation applications from parties representing Children’s Healthcare of Georgia and Executive Park. The propertiesare located on the east side of I-85 and fronted by North Druid Hills Road.

The cost for the additional police officers would be $583,000, while the cost for the extra code officer is $100,000. According to the report, the city has notified the annexation applicants that they would need to advance the funds to pay for the police officer. The funds include both manpower and equipment.

DeKalb County would continue to provide water, sewer and fire services for the annexed area as it also does for Brookhaven. The report also stated that no increase in cost was expected for general administration services.
