Three members of City Council are hosting Town Hall meetings this week with the intent of gathering public input on taxpayer-funded projects.
Each meeting will last approximately 90 minutes. The focus is to obtain public feedback to help “shape” the controversial new Savannah Arena and to discuss what type of projects citizens would like to see funded if SPLOST 7 is approved by voters next year.
SPLOST (Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax) is the one percent sales tax used to fund new construction projects in Chatham County. It is voted on by referendum.
