How DeKalb County Got a CEO: A Talk with Former CEO Liane Levetan
DeKalb County Chief Judge Gregory Adams this month unsealed a special grand jury report, outlining what the panel said were years of corruption in county water and sewer contracts.
Among the grand jury's recommendations: the abolition of DeKalb's unique CEO form of government. DeKalb adopted the CEO structure in 1986.
For a look at why that happened in the first place, WABE's Denis O'Hayer spoke with Liane Levetan. She was a county commissioner under the previous system, then served as the county's second CEO, then moved to the State Senate.
