AUGUSTA, GA. (WFXG) - Richmond County Commissioners officially voted to approve a Chevy Tahoe for Mayor Hardie Davis.

Tuesday they learned the vehicle will be used by the mayor- not his staff.

However, state law requires the general public to weigh in on whether or not a vehicle is exempt from having decals. Mayor Davis cited his family and staff’s safety for not wanting those decals.

Commissioners did vote 7 to 2 to revisit the decal discussion in a public hearing next year.
