SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — The dispute between the city and county over police costs appears to have come to an end.
The Savannah City Council agreed on a deal Thursday to settle the matter on outstanding costs owed by the Chatham County Board of Commissioners.
The city claimed they were owed more than $6 million for police protection services in 2016 and 2017.
As a compromise, the county agreed to pay about $3.2 million for police services in 2016, 2017 and the month of January 2018.
The county will also take over the 911 center when the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department splits on Feb. 1.
