COLUMBUS, Ga. — Mayor Teresa Tomlinson has formed an Advisory Commission to look into whether the city needs to build a new Government and Judicial Center.
The mayor says the current building needs major improvements.
Just a week after the Mayor announced this Advisory Commission several people became trapped inside of a Government Center elevator on Wednesday.
Mayor Teresa Tomlinson says the building is nearly 50 years old and that renovations are long overdue.
There are 3 options that they can possibly move forward with:
- Completely gut and renovate the current building.
- Tear down the building completely and rebuild from the ground up.
- Build 2 completely separate buildings, which would include a Government Center and a Judicial Center.
