City Extends Deadline for Fire Fee Discount Applications
SAVANNAH, GA (June 1, 2018) — The City of Savannah is extending the deadline for property owners to submit Fire Fee Discount applications to Friday, June 15.
“We believe it is important to give people an extra two weeks to complete their applications so they can receive a discount. We hope more of our property owners take advantage of the discounts and take the appropriate measures to make their homes safer,” said City Manager Rob Hernandez.
The Revenue Department has received nearly 1,000 calls each day for the past three days from property owners seeking help with their applications. In addition, the number of applications received has nearly doubled in the past few days.
Anyone who needs help with their Fire Fee Discount application can contact the Revenue Department by calling (912) 525-2810 or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Property owners are encouraged to contact the Revenue Department by e-mail due to high call volume and higher than usual wait times.
