DeKalb won't close rec centers

By Bill Torpy

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

DeKalb County commissioners on Monday approved changes to the midyear budget that will keep two recreation centers in operation that were headed for closure and won't raise taxes. However, county officials still need to juggle cost items or make more cuts in the next few weeks.

The vote kept open the Lucious Sanders Recreation Center in Lithonia and the Mason Mill Center, action that attracted dozens of spectators. About 100 seniors, many wearing red T-shirts, came to oppose cuts to recreation programs.
