County, cities to avoid court
Agreements struck on long-awaited service delivery strategy

The protracted tussle over service delivery strategy between Effingham County and some of the cities appears to be over, before it has to go before a judge to be settled.
The county and three municipalities were scheduled to appear in front of Judge Ronnie Rahn from the Atlantic Judicial Circuit this morning to settle differences over the service delivery strategy. 
“If everything goes as expected, this will settle the service delivery strategy litigation that’s been going on for 18 months,” said Guyton city attorney Ramona Bartos. “It sets up a new mechanism of how the service delivery strategy acts. We believe it will benefit the cities and the county. It sets up a transparent way to see how tax dollars are spent on services.”
