PORTERDALE, Ga. – With moving boxes stacked next to the wall, the Porterdale City Council held 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 yesterday and will be closed today while city workers complete the move into the new City Hall, located 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 of 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. has 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 a ribbon cutting for the new facility will be scheduled for next week.
