The Guyton City Council has approved a series of intergovernmental agreements with Effingham County that will set parameters for parts of the service delivery strategy.
Council members unanimously approved separate service delivery agreements for recreation, the county jail, fire protection and road maintenance and construction. After months of negotiation, county and municipal representatives ironed out a proposal that would require intergovernmental agreements between the county and the individual cities for such services as recreation, fire protection, roads, the jail and drainage and stormwater.
Guyton city attorney Ramona Bartos said the county is waiting to approve Guyton’s submitted fire budget.
