Alpharetta Rotary raised more than $107,000 for area charities in its first Donation Derby fundraiser held on Zoom and Facebook Live May 2.

The event was a tribute to local Rotarian and incoming Rotary District Gov. Kirk Driskell, who had been scheduled to attend a district conference at Jekyll Island on Derby Day this year. When the conference was canceled, local club members decided to honor Driskell with a fundraiser.

Alpharetta city leaders are divided over a proposal for a bond referendum that would generate some $71 million for improvements in parks, public safety and transportation. The plan includes boosting the homestead exemption so residents won’t be saddled with a tax increase to pay for the bond. Opponents, including Mayor Jim Gilvin, say the bond would raise taxes by 30 percent and place the burden on commercial property owners.
