Mayor Mike Bodker delivers his State of the City address to sold-out audience.
As far as its budget goes, Johns Creek is "holding steady" financially, Mayor Mike Bodker told some 200 folks attending his State of the City address at the Atlanta Athletic Club on Friday. But, "if we don't work on economic development in this city, we're going to be in trouble," Bodker later added. He pointed to "Johns Creek Advantage," an economic development plan by the Johns Creek Chamber of Commerce and the Johns Creek Economic Development Corporation. He urged business to support the program, which has a goal of hiring staff to promote the city, and would work to attract new businesses while providing services to existing business in the city. Bodker said the city's tax digest is too unbalanced, at 79 percent residential and 21 …

Johns Creek Mayor Mike Bodker holds 'Conversation With Community' at Perimeter Church.
Johns Creek Mayor Mike Bodker continued a December tradition this week with his "Conversation With the Community" town hall-style gathering at Perimeter Church. He told some 50 audience members that the city is in the early stages of looking into obtaining a loan to address neighborhood infrastructure needs.

All roadwork in the city so far is focused on main thoroughfares outside of subdivisions. Bodker also pointed to a recent study by the city that addressed the most dangerous intersections in Johns Creek. He said plans are already underway to address the top 9 most dangerous, and that a report has been sent to the …

Mayor Mike Bodker talks fiscal responsibility, transportation at annual address.
Some 200 members of the Johns Creek community turned out Friday morning at the Atlanta Athletic Club to hear Mayor Mike Bodker's annual State of the City address. "We started the movement for the city of Johns Creek back in 2004," Bodker said. "It was a fascinating and exciting time for many of us. . . .
