(Franklin) — The City of Franklin held a groundbreaking ceremony Monday morning for the new City Hall building on the square in downtown Franklin.

The city council approved a bid of $719,000.00 from Headley Construction from Newnan at the August council meeting and signed the official contract on August 10.

“I would like for the citizens of Franklin to know that no general funds will be used for this project,” said Mayor Joel Rogers at the ceremony.

“The funds will come from a bond voted on June 18, 2006 along with some other money allocated in SPLOST IV to help finish it out.”

The project is expected to be complete in January of 2016 and will house all city offices. The police department will remain at its current location.

The new city hall will sit on the same property that once housed city hall in the 1970’s and 80’s.
