Re: “State targets homeless camps in West Savannah for removal

Re-open the old Brown Farm? Seriously? A work camp, how about a place where people can live camp? Affordable housing has become this county's and city's elusive butterfly. Neither government has gotten a grasp or grip on the situation. It is unlikely they ever will.

Re: “State targets homeless camps in West Savannah for removal

Why not re-open the old Brown Farm, a good idea. A work camp. That would give these folks something to do and three squares per day.

Re: “Savannah City Council votes to raise property taxes, is set for full repeal of Fire Fee

Well... most liberal cities and states do not have to worry (as much) about being a victim of violent crimes and do not need to segregate themselves with numerous private schools, gated communities, and insufficient subsidies for the under privileged (which makes it more likely to choose a criminal life if you can barely eat).
You really think lowering taxes will make the city better? Will you take care of your own sewer systems? will you make sure the water is safe to drink or bathe in, will you police yourself or pay them yourself with a good salary, put out fires, hold your own courts processes, etc..
Sorry. I know it must be frustrating supporting yourself and family when taxes go up. But, they seem to go up with liberals or conservatives in charge. They just want your vote. Also, If you guys still have that homestead tax, then you shouldn't complain about taxes at all.

The great Southern town of Savannah is Tara by the river. Some are awaiting the return of Rhett Butler whether Scarlett O'Hara is with him or not.

Re: “Roy Minter selected as new Savannah Police Chief

What was interim Chief Mark Revenew? A 20th Century police executive? And what is his record as far as embracing diversity across all dimensions? If he has that trait, I have not seen it displayed.

Re: “Council, City Manager spar over budget re-do in wake of Fire Fee controversy

To discount my fire fee, I had four fireman walk through my apartment and visually verified that I had smoke detectors, a fire extinguisher, and a carbon monoxide detector (even though my apartment is all electric). None of them were tested to see if they worked, so it's not like this activity improves safety. The entire thing is pure theater. How about the cost of having firemen conduct these inspections? This is a prime example of irrational policy making.

Re: “Council, City Manager spar over budget re-do in wake of Fire Fee controversy

My experience in living here most of my life is that the Savannah city manager is the most powerful single person at city hall. Unfortunately, the one we have now is looking to gouge every last penny out of residents here and when this wave of get-rich-quick schemes --parking overcharges accompanied by droves of parking predators in red shirts, bogus, illegal "fire fees," and abetting the school board in their plan to jack up taxes--he'll think of other shakedown methods.

It appears to me that the clowncilmen are actually too stupid to understand what is being run past them, since they are merely rubes off the streets who must hire outsiders at fancy fees to come here and tell them how to do their jobs. They go along to get along and hope the kickbacks the developers and high-bid folks pay them will be big. (And apparently, up to now, they have been.)

Of course all of them should be dumped rapidly in the next election and some of them will hopefully take a whipping at the polls. I think the "Gang-of-Five," the yes-man dirtbags on clowncil who do as Mayor Eddie--a guy with a lawn-cutting business-- tells them realize that this is the last time in history that a cartel of mostly-white pols is going to have a chance to steal like this.

I am sure that City Manager knows he could have a set of bosses to answer to. While his is an appointed position, theirs (City Council) is not. My, my, my, now they feel the "burn".

Re: “Georgia, S.C. now have firearm permit reciprocity

Matt,
Other states dont have it as good as we do here in GA. I know. I hit up gun shops and pawn shops all over this country. The only other state Ive seen with prices close to ours is Colorado. Expensive to live there but their gun prices are better than everywhere else but here. Search pawn shops for gems. Im a revolver guy and I get Smith model 10s in .38 with 4 barrels for $200 all day long. Can also come across a Smith Model 36, 37 or 38 for the same price. Are they new, no. But if you test their function, cylinder timing and make sure theres no push off, then youve scored a quality defensive firearm that can serve multiple purposes with the right ammo. The deals are there just look. Some folks just gotta have a brand new gun. Why? They are tools. If they work, they work.

Re: “Telfair Director Lisa Grove set to take Obama Foundation job

The racist president was Woodrow Wilson who showed D.W. Griffin's Birth of a Nation at the White House and who also set up separate facilities for Black and White federal workers. Abraham Lincoln was no saint either. I still remember film footage of Ronald Reagan before a predominately Black audience saying I can't do a damn thing for you if I don't get elected. True to form, he got elected and didn't do a damn thing. George H. W. Bush's legacy is Clarence Thomas on the Supreme Court. Benign racism from GOP presidents.

Re: “Georgia, S.C. now have firearm permit reciprocity

Carry permit costs in Georgia are $75.00 for 5 years, that's $15.00 a year. You can't afford that? I can make that work mowing neighbors yards for extra money on the weekend if I needed to. You can also buy a very decent firearm for around 200.00 try a SCCY 9mm.

Re: “City solicits public comment on paid parking proposal for Forsyth Park

And of course they realize that the reason these spaces get taken all day is because the folks who work ing the hotels and restaurants are now having to park down there because the parking rates have sky-rocketed NOG!!! That is why they have a public meeting during the hours that all of those folks, who will be most impacted by the change, will be at work. Can The City please stop trying to make up the millions of dollars they have blown on developers, consultants and trying to teach the people at the Water Utility how to use a computer, by fleecing those who can afford it the least!?!?
