SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The City of Savannah says it will be sending out 64 letters this week to owners whose properties meet the definition of "chronically blighted" under the new Community Redevelopment Tax Incentive Ordinance.

This will be the first round of properties cited under the ordinance, adopted by city council in February.

Making that list increases the property taxes seven-fold. Correct the maintenance violations on the property and the taxes go back down.
