The Savannah, Ga., City Council is expected to name Stephanie Cutter as city manager. Cutter has been acting manager since October, after Rochelle Small-Toney resigned. Councilors say they support Cutter's appointment, citing her participation in negotiations on local-option sales tax, her economic-development efforts and her ability to create a cooperative work environment. "She has proven to be the person I feel can take this city to another level," Alderman John Hall said. "I don't think we have to look elsewhere. We have a jewel right here."
