Calling it a move that will save taxpayers money and keep millage rates low, the Richmond Hill City Council voted unanimously Tuesday against keeping the private company OMI to run the city’s public works department next year.
The measure becomes effective Jan. 1 and officials said it will save more than $350,000 — a figure based on OMI’s $3 million annual budget and the city’s plan to hire Braddy Enterprises Public Works Division LLC of Savannah to run Richmond Hill’s utilities on an interim basis for about $2.6 million annually.
The move is part of a plan to bring operation of the city’s utilities “in house,” according to Mayor Harold Fowler.
