Administration Notices
Update: General Manager Search

The search for a new general manager for Bent Tree is, we all hope, nearing an end. The search committee recently hosted one of two finalists for the position, who met with administrative officials, Board of Directors members and Bent Tree department heads.  
A second candidate will be visiting the first week in December and it is hoped the board will make a decision in mid-December. In the meantime, Controller Melissa Leach remains in charge.

Although the guide contains everything residents need to know, below is some information that Public Safety receives frequent questions about:

This friendly, beautiful cat was hanging out on Locust Trail and on Mulligan last month. Oreo, as we are calling kitty, loves being petted. We know she/he was used to being with people so someone should be looking for her.

If you recognize Oreo (notice the tiny white spot on her nose) please call or text LuAnn Chambers. 678-414-1047. 

We have so many precious babies at the Bent Tree Animal Shelter that need forever homes. Please come meet them and find your newest buddy or view them on the website here.  A volunteer with the shelter will be glad to introduce you to the kitties.
