The goal of today’s meeting to establish a timeline for developing a plan to resolve that impasse. But it’s unclear how much progress the city council and the school district can make.
The Atlanta City Council hasn’t had a role in the negotiations, which until now have been held between Reed’s office, APS executives and Atlanta Beltline Inc., the nonprofit overseeing the project’s build-out.
Recently, however, President Ceasar Mitchell called for a truce in the dispute and has lobbied for the council to get involved in its own set of talks with the school district.
Within days of that plea, negotiations broke down further with Mayor Kasim Reed publicly criticizing both Davis and APS Board Chairman Courtney English. Reed's office and APS leaders are meeting later this month to resume negotiations.
Today’s meeting starts at 10 a.m. Follow reporters Katie Leslie and Molly Bloom on Twitter for live updates.
