Houston County holds groundbreaking for new government building
PERRY, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT)— Houston County held a groundbreaking for a new government building.
The building will be almost 20,000 square feet and cost $3.5 million to build.
It will have a voting precinct, training and meeting rooms, and a secure area for voting machine storage.
Chairman for the Houston County Board of Commissioners, Tommy Stalnaker, says he’s excited for the new building.
“We’ve needed this building for a long time we needed the space to store the voting equipment, we’re going to have plenty of space to store the new voting equipment and it’s going to be a great asset for the Board of Elections,” said Stalnaker.
The City of Perry will take over the current Houston County government building.
The project is expected to be completed in October 2021.
