Savannah Budget

The cash-strapped city of Savannah is moving ahead with plans to get its budget under control.

The city is anticipating major bond payments in November, and has already cut recycling services for residents to deal with the financial picture. Officials plan on holding 3 or 4 budget meetings starting next month to complete the next budget, and is asking for bids on trash hauling and recycling services, as the city's current contract expires at the end of September. Members also got an update on the golf course expenses, which has seen about a $6,000 drop in memberships, but that's being offset by increased green fees. The golf course superintendent says because of the increased fees revenues are holding about the same as last year.
