Community issues discussed in Cloverdale

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - City leaders meeting with members of the Cloverdale community to discuss changes coming their way.

Many in the community are more concerned about a community center they voted for that was supposed to be paid for with SPLOST money -- money the city says has been used already for other projects.

"They've wanted, for some time, to have a community center here. Certainly, I'm committed to doing what I can to get it for them, but obviously, the budget to realities are that maybe you know it's not the best time," said Alderman Van Johnson, of city of Savannah.

"The school board has allowed the project to be built on school property, which is a good thing. The county manager has assured us that the money will be in place, but at this time, we're still waiting on the city's obligation," Curtis Cooper, of Savannah.

The city still has not decided on a timetable to build the community center.
