Schools in Fulton are JUST like everywhere else (including the City of Atlanta) affluent communities usually have better school than working class or poor ones. Sad, but true. Its all economic.

You grew up in the Baltimore area and didn't know that Baltimore County, the most populous county in the metro, has no incorporated jurisdictions within its boundaries?

Baltimore is one few metro areas in the country that has very few incorporated communities or municipalities in its immediate urbanized area. The counties in Maryland maintain and provide municipal services for the vast majority of the population.

Bumping this as I have been off CD for a while and being out of state, wanted an update on these two cities. Are they actually in existence yet? Any snafus?

I live in the City of South Fulton. Not much action yet, city council is trying to hire assistants for 90k a year which I think is ridiculous and Union City is trying to rezone land on it's border to Industrial right next to a residential neighborhood and two schools and that's been an issue.

I meant, the metro area not Baltimore County. Obviously, I knew that or I wouldn't have made my post about my issue with all the cities being formed here.

Baltimore County has no cities but Arundel, Carroll and Harford County have cities in their limits.

Yep, they're both Incorporated now. It's too early to tell how things will go.

You all thought Bill Edwards and Camillia Moore weren't going to start allowing such waste from Day 1?

Yeah, many warned you all that was going to happen. Also according to the Fulton County Tax Assessor, Arthur Ferdinand, South Fulton only has approximately 10 months of revenue for municipal operations coming in from the assessment of taxes conducted. I'm not saying, but I am just saying...
