City Hall

People’s South Bank of Georgia will move forward in purchasing the building that currently houses city employees. The closing date on the building is set for mid-May and the buyers have expressed an interest in moving in as soon as possible and city hall employees have been asked to vacate the property by June.

Several vacant buildings were explored as temporary options but were tossed out due to size or rent costs. Top choices include moving into the Civic Center or the recently completed Public Works building.

Hubbard said if the city chose to use the Civic Center, the structure would need outfitted with the proper wiring to allow access to the city’s network and an alternate location for meetings would need to be explored.

The Public Works building already has the necessary network connections but size restrictions could make it difficult to house all employees under one roof.

Police Chief Glenn Norris offered up the training room inside the old police station.

Norris said it would be large enough to accommodate the city employees and the network connections already existed. Because the room operates on a different air conditioning and heating system, it was free of the mold that infects the rest of the structure.
