The City of Jenkinsburg celebrated the opening of its newly remodeled city hall last Saturday afternoon and the festivities culminated with a ribbon cutting.

Bathrooms and the kitchen were relocated within the structure and city hall was expanded to include a conference room. The city clerk's office was reconfigured to include a fire-proof filing room.

City Clerk Laurie Francis said all Jenkinsburg records will be stored there.

A front entrance was added, complete with a bulletin board. The entrance also accommodates the disabled with an automatic door.

Francis said the interior has new flooring, and the exterior grounds were landscaped.

"The well out front was redone; we have three new flag poles and the city seal is on the front of the building," Francis said.

City Council members, Jenkinsburg citizens, friends, family, Flovilla Mayor Harvey Norris, Chamber of Commerce Director Melinda Atha, and Clean Up Butts County President Jim Trenton were in attendance. Trenton was present to assist people with questions regarding the 2010 Census.
