Help the police canvas the neighborhood to solve a murder

From Atlanta Police Zone 4:
On February 10, 2021, a 12-year-old David Mack was shot and killed about 100 yards behind 1984 Shirly Street in Utoy Creek. The homicide unit has been actively working leads and crime stoppers calls to get closure for the family in this case. Atlanta Crime Stoppers run by our police foundation has increased the reward amount for information in the case.

On Thursday, February 25, 2021 from 1600hrs to 1730hrs (4pm to 5:30pm) Zone 4 officers and other units will be working with Homicide investigators in the area doing neighborhood canvas. The neighborhood canvas will include giving out information on the crime and who to contact with information. I would like to invite the area community members who would like to help take part in helping to close this case. Basically, all you would be doing is paring up with an officer and or detective and going door to door to speaking with residents. Some residents may not know about this incident and have a small piece of information that could assist the Homicide unit. This will allow community members and the police to team up and work on this case. If you are interested in more information about helping, please feel free to email me at JCantin@atlantaga.gov

Free Ivy Removal (& Volunteer Recruitment) Oakland City/Bush Mtn

English Ivy may look pretty growing up the side of your house or across your yard, but it can quickly take over a landscape; it is a threat to our tree canopy and to the people and houses living under it. Ivy makes it hard for trees to receive the sunlight they need to grow. If left alone, ivy will eventually kill trees, and increase the likelihood they can fall during a storm.

But, there is good news! No need to cut down an otherwise healthy tree.  Ivy is easily removed by cutting away the ivy from the bottom. Over time, the rest of the growth at the top of the tree dies off, and you have healthy tree once again.

If you live in Oakland City or Bush Mountain, Oakland City Community Organization, in cooperation with West End Watershed Alliance and Community Foodscapes, has created a program to remove ivy from trees at your home for free! Sign up here to have up to three trees cleared of ivy. 

Removing ivy will extend a tree's life span, beautify our neighborhood's natural landscape, and reduce the risk of a fallen tree on your property.

 If you're interested in signing up to volunteer, you can sign up at https://volunteer.handsonatlanta.org/opportunity/a0C1H00001M6f9bUAB
