GNB Update

Hope you enjoyed your Wednesday...And now here's the news...

The drought is over...for now. reports that Georgia's Drought Response Committee lifted the ban on residential watering Wednesday morning. But the lifting of that ban comes with some conditions. Residential watering is still limited to several times a week, although it can be done during any part of the day. Under permanent statewide watering rules...odd-numbered addresses can water their lawns on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays...while even-numbered addresses can water them on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.

A Savannah car dealership has its ties to the troubled Chrysler Corporation severed. The Savannah Morning News reports that Savannah Dodge was one of the 789 dealerships that were terminated by the embattled U.S. automaker late Tuesday. It's now a used car store. Last month, Chrysler announced that ties with about a fourth of its dealers nationwide as part of bankruptcy proceedings.
