The Georgia Senate on March 25 passed bills calling for a November vote on creation of two new DeKalb County cities, LaVista Hills and Tucker, according to ajc.com and the LaVista Hills Yes Facebook page.

The state House had approved similar bills, and the Senate versions now go to the House for approval, the websites say. A Senate committee differed fro the House version after members of a committee shifted the line between the two proposed cities, moving about 2,000 residents from Tucker to LaVista Hills, ajc.com reported.
