AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) – Augusta residents got a chance to speak out on the Mayor’s new truck. 

The commission held a public hearing on whether the mayor’s new Chevy Tahoe will be exempt from state law that requires city vehicles to have decals. 

Arlene White was one of four speakers and got a laugh when she said if the Mayor buys a truck it he can have anything he wants on it. 

“My self and the people I represent are delighted for our Mayor to put whatever he wishes on his vehicle as long as he pays for it himself. He needs to own the vehicle and have bought it himself,” said Arlene White speaking at the public hearing. 

It was announced Mayor Davis left the public hearing because his father was taken to the hospital.

The commission took no action on the decal following the public hearing.
