News Brief

2009-08-18SAVANNAH, MO |  By: Wayman

Savannah Council

The City has hired a new company that will come to the workplace for the Random Drug Screenings instead of Savannah employees having to drive to St. Joseph and back. On average the process now takes less than half an hour per employee, compared to about 2 hours because of the drive time and testing before. Savannah has also submitted an application for the state's "Dream" initiative, which has in the past given money to smaller communities to help with Downtown Redevelopment. The application was attached to letters of support, including one from state senator Brad Lager. The City has also hired Snyder and associates engineering to do design and survey work for the Cedar and East Price Streets improvements. And Savannah will now have to pay dollars for every animal it has transferred to the St. Joseph Animal And Rescue Shelter. That's double the 20 dollar fee it was before.
