So, the City of Savannah is now accepting applications from the public for boards, commissions and authorities. Most of the divisions are ones we've heard of, such as the Metropolitan Planning Commission and the Historic District Board of Review.
And then there's the TRAFFIC CALMING COMMITTEE. Really?! What the heck is that? Whoever's been on this board in the past has done a LOUSY job, so PLEASE apply now and get Savannah traffic calm. Wouldn't that cause a drop in Xanax prescriptions in the area...
