Lithonia is a suburban town in eastern DeKalb County, Georgia, and it is incorporated as a city. Lithonia's population was 2,187 at the U.S. census.
"Lithonia" means "city/town of stone". Lithonia is in the heart of the Georgian granite-quarrying and viewing region, hence the name of the town, from the Greek lithos, for stone. The huge nearby granite dome, Stone Mountain, is composed largely of a rock called Lithonia gneiss, a form of granite. The city of Lithonia is in the metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia area.
Lithonia is home to the major regional shopping center in the southeast Metro, The Mall at Stonecrest (also known as Stonecrest Mall).
In 2006, WSB-TV discovered that the Lithonia Police Department had been illegally driving uninsured police cruisers for a period of six months. There has been much debate over the former mayor Darold Honore and his practices of managing government funds. Honore had the password and locks changed to the city council building without releasing the new password or keys to any council members.
In early 2008, a new mayoral election was held. This election was not without controversy, when Joyce McKibben emerging as the winner by just one vote. The other candidate Rhonda Peek challenged these results and contested that McKibben's main residence wasn't inside the city limits. Peek tried to have her case tried in the Dekalb County Courts, but they would not hear the case. Peek next took her case to neighboring Rockdale County, where the court ruled against Peek, ruling that the results of the election were valid.
The median income for a household in the city is $23,397, and the median income for a family is $24,792.
