City Aldermans host second "Ask an Alderman" meeting

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -
Monday evening some of Savannah's Aldermans hosted another "Ask the Alderman" meeting in the second district.

This event was held at the intersection of 37th Street and Waters Avenue. Alderman At Large Carol Bell and Alderman Mary Osborne met with folks, where crime was a hot topic.

"Crime seems to be an issue in both of the districts I have engaged. They're talking about youth crime, and some of the person-on-person crime , whether they are shootings or vice, or whatever various altercations," said Carol Bell.

City leaders say they are planning to hold similar events in all six of Savannah's districts.
