Annex-ee provides signed, completed form to city staff.
Annexation is put on council agenda and voted on after the second read of the item.
If approved, letter is sent to DeKalb CEO from City Management. GIS sends a copy of the same letter to DeKalb GIS. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The County has 30 days to protest the annexation under various grounds outlined in the Georgia code. If there is no response received from the County within that timeframe, it is assumed that they have no issue with the annexation.
The annexation takes effect on the first 1st day of the month after 30 days have passed since the second read. (e.g. an annexation approved on November 15th will not take effect until January 1st of the next year.)
DeKalb County and the Georgia Department of Community Affairs must be notified of the annexation within 60 days of it taking effect. DeKalb County GIS should be emailed the minutes of the meeting where the annexation was approved while the DCAs online annexation notification form shall be completed.

DeKalb County, specifically, has no web submittal or other standardized form for submitting annexations. However, per the Georgia code local municipalities are still required to submit a report to the County that includes all of the information that is sent to DCA.
Using the DCA submittal form as a guide, include all of the information DCA asks for in a word document containing Tucker letterhead.
Once complete, sent it via email to email@example.com and also include a link to your city’s updated data (preferably via an open data site).
The city itself does not maintain data regarding CID classification. However, we do work to ensure that all parcels are correctly classified post-annexation.
