Porterdale City Hall on the move
With moving boxes stacked next to the wall, the Porterdale City Council conducted its last work session and meeting in the current city hall Thursday night, discussing SPLOST financing, modifications to the city’s parking ordinance and passing a new Flood Plain Ordinance.
City offices were closed Thursday and Friday while city workers completed the move into the new City Hall at 2800 Main St., in the renovated old fire station.
The new City Hall is scheduled to open Monday, Aug. 28, at 8:30 a.m. Public works Director Robert Witcher said a majority on the work renovating the old fire station was completed by city’s public works staff.
Council Member Linda Finger said the building at 2400 Main St. had been used as City Hall for the last 20 years. Police Chief Jason Cripps said it is slated to be renovated to become the city’s new police headquarters.
Mayor Arline Chapman said the ribbon cutting for the new facility will be scheduled for this week.
