More Hall offices moving next week
GAINESVILLE - More Hall County offices plan to move into the new county government center at Browns Bridge and McEver roads next week.
This includes all offices in the Development Services Building on Prior Street, as well as the Engineering Division in the Joint Administration Building. These offices will be closed Tuesday as they make the move.
The elections and voter registration office moved into the new complex earlier in the summer.
Departments moving to the new building on Sept. 4 are:

In addition, all of Hall County's administrative offices, courts, community centers and libraries will be closed Monday for the Labor Day holiday.
Departments will continue to move into the new building throughout September and October. County officials say consolidating the county's numerous department locations will improve customer service, increase staff efficiency, reduce operational costs, and eliminate office space rentals.
Voters approved a total of $17 million in SPLOST VI (Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax) funding for renovation of the old courthouse and annex and relocation of administration offices. The former Liberty Mutual building was purchased using $6.1 million in SPLOST dollars, and renovations of the new building are budgeted at $2.9 million.
