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.
