Saint Patrick's Day changes recommended to City Council

By Jamie Ertle-Durden - email

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - City Council members are currently discussing the future of Saint Patrick's Day festivities (see: Possible changes for Saint Patrick's Day) and now they've come to the table.

Bill Hubbard from the Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce along with the Convention and Visitors Bureau presented ideas to the Savannah City Council members today.

They're recommending getting rid of the gates along River Street, eliminating wrist bands and allowing no beer vendors in open areas like City Market.

City council members seem to be wary of these ideas. It leaves them with 47 days to make a decision with no public input. They don't want to rush into a decision.

Don Logana is in council workshop and he'll have all the details starting with THE News at 5:00.
