SYLVANIA — Screven County’s AMI Kids youth development facility faces possible closing after Georgia’s Office of Budget and Planning proposed to move the center’s 150 youth to a vacant prison facility in Telfair County. Members of AMI Kids Georgia Corporate Office will be present tonight at a specially called town hall meeting to provide information on how to keep the facility open at its current location, a few miles outside of Sylvania. The facility, also known as Savannah River Challenge, is not yet closed, said Dorothy Glisson, AMI board member and city registrar, because the board appealed the decision of state officials to move to Telfair.
