Savannah Civic Center repairs considered |

After its garbled graphics started resembling a malfunctioning ’80s videogame, the electronic marquee for the Savannah Civic Center has faded to black.

One might be inclined to think no events are being held at the downtown facility. And that is a problem, city officials say.

Some acts have been complaining about the lack of promotion for their events since the marquee went dark, according to a recent staff report to City Council.

And that is not the only amenity showing its age at the 41-year-old structure, which houses an arena, the Johnny Mercer Theater, meeting spaces, a ballroom and exhibit hall.

The city has almost $2.2 million in civic center repairs and upgrades included in its 2013-17 capital improvement plan.
