City Worker Dies in Accident
SAVANNAH, GA (January 10, 2019) — The City of Savannah is mourning the loss of Peter Solomon, who died in a work-related accident yesterday. Pete was on the Streets Maintenance crew within the Public Works & Water Resources Department.
“We’ve lost a member of our family,” says City Manager Rob Hernandez. “It’s a tragedy. It’s never something we want to see happen. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Mr. Solomon.”
About 3:45 p.m. City of Savannah PD officers responded to the city lot on Sycamore Drive where they discovered the scene of the accident and the deceased.
Pete was originally from Orlando, Florida where he retired from a Florida municipality. He worked with Chatham County for five years before joining the City of Savannah. He was an avid Georgia Bulldogs fan and a valuable contributor to the Streets Maintenance Division. He will be deeply missed by his friends and coworkers both here at the City and with Chatham County Public Works.
