Town hall meeting links residents to county services

Beaufort Co. School District holds budget forum

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Commisioner Jay Jones held a town hall on Tuesday to connect with his residents in Chatham County.

Chatham County Police Officers were there talking with neighbors. CEMA, E-911, and voter registration were all on hand to answer questions.

Jones says social media is a great communicator but these town halls can get more people in the loop with Chatham County services.

“They wanted to talk to certain groups of people and making sure those groups of people were present," said Commission Jay Jones. "I just wanted to make sure that I eliminated any excuse that would be out there as far as getting county presence within the community.”

There’s two more townhalls for district five. Saturday at the Southwest library from 10:30 a.m. to noon and next Tuesday May 21st from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at bamboo farms.
