Finding a permanent city hall home high on priority list for new officials

 

CELINA-Winners in June’s City of Celina election officially took office on July 1, and will start work right away to find a long-term solution on where to locate city hall.

The old city hall, which also housed the Clay County Rescue Squad, was destroyed by fire just three days after the June election. Since then, a temporary city hall has been set up in the Eads building on the square, and city officials have been using that as a base of operation. 

New mayor Willie Kerr said he, returning aldermen Donnie Long (vice-mayor) and Don Haston and new alderman Joey Locke will discuss finding a permanent home for city hall at their first meeting on Tuesday, July 14.
