First District representative Mary Hamilton gave Ludowici City Council options on Tuesday for the city to join the Southeast Georgia Friends of Fort Stewart and Hunter.
During the council’s August meeting, Hamilton said there were several levels of monetary support that the city could provide to become a member. She said that the cost could run from $10 per month to $2,000.
Hamilton said that the organization’s executive director, Paul Andreshak, was receptive to Ludowici becoming a member, and that she would be setting up a second meeting with him to discuss the specifics of the city joining.
Hamilton said she would gather more information and report her findings to the council.
According to the organization’s website, Southeast Georgia Friends of Fort Stewart and Hunter is a nonprofit organization “dedicated to enhancing the overall economic value of Fort Stewart and the communities surrounding Fort Stewart” via relationships among partners such as the military community, local governments and agencies, businesses and individuals.
