FORSYTH, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) -- Monroe County officially celebrated the opening of its new county administrative building Thursday.
The $3.2 million project was paid for in full with money from the 2008 SPLOST. Monroe County Commissioner Patsy Miller says it's great to have a one-stop-shop for county business.
"I was the tax commissioner for 13 years, I worked in the old building so this is just absolutely, I told them I was ready to run for tax commissioner again because it's just so beautiful and everything is so accessible it's just a great building," said Miller.
Resident Neysa Quinn says she's impressed with the way the building turned out.
"It's definitely beautiful. We saw it when it was just a parking lot and we were like wow what are they going to do with it, and literally came up over night it seemed as though, and it's a remarkable place now," said Quinn.
The old county commission building was also renovated in the process. The project took about a year and a half to complete.
