STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -

Chatham County is working on a lot of different projects right now and the Rotary Club in Statesboro got an update from Commission Chairman Al Scott. 

He talked to the group about a number of different projects including the budgets of departments and consolidating agencies. 

Scott said consolidation has been a challenge because a number of individual police departments are revenue generators. He said there are some departments that could easily be consolidated. 

"We have an excellent Chatham County Emergency Management Agency. It makes no sense for other cities to have emergency management agencies. They could have someone report up so everyone is tied in - but that is a duplication that you really don't need," Scott said. 

He also talked about the search for a new county manager, which he hopes to have competed by January.
