Housing Authority of Savannah

Description:
The Housing Authority of Savannah was established in 937 pursuant to general law O.C.G.A. 8-3-1 et seq. which creates a Housing Authority for each City and County. It functions as a developer and landlord of housing programs for Savannah low income residents. The authority provides leadership and advocates for public housing, sets policies, and ensures operation within the law.

Membership/Appointment:
The general law provides for a governing body of five (5) Commissioners with one (1) appointment each year. Vacancies are filled for the unexpired terms. Commissioners serve until a successor is named. The terms begin, on January 5th of each year. Any appointment after January 5th would be for the reminder of the term expiring on January 5th.   The General Assembly of 1994 repealed all special legislation providing for additional Commissioners and Residents, thus the only Commissions are the five (5) Regular Commissioners appointed pursuant to general law.

Term:
Five (5) year terms
