City releases SCMPD Merger document

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

City Manager Stephanie Cutter and City Attorney Brooks Stillwell released to City Council a document outlining critical background concerning the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department Intergovernmental Agreement, adopted in 2003 on Thursday.

The document, and a video of the City Council Workshop it was presented in, can be viewed at www.savannahga.gov/merger

In addition to outlining critical data, cost allocation and management background, the document identifies critical issues with the County's proposed revisions to the Agreement.

The City and County have begun negotiating revisions to the 11-year-old agreement. The City expects to release its formal response to the County's proposal shortly, and will release the document to the public at that time.
