November 3--  The City of Vidalia is seeking a contractor to repair six streets damaged by Hurricane Irma in September.

City Manager Nick Overstreet says a request for bids was sent out this past Monday to repair damage on Darby Circle, Rocky Creek Drive, Lewis Drive, Stella Avenue, Kissingbower Road and Clydette Boulevard. 

Companies have until November 13th to return bids and Overstreet says he hopes repair work can start before the end of November.

Airport Management

The city has changed the management structure at the Vidalia Regional Airport.

Airport manager Kevin Britton is no longer a city employee and has formed a company to manage the airport.  City manager Overstreet says the contract with Britton's Kilo-Bravo, LLC will save the city about $36,000 a year in pay and benefits to Britton.
