Columbus mayor enters talks of new government center

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:

  1. Completely gut and renovate the current building.
  2. Tear down the building completely and rebuild from the ground up.
  3. Build 2 completely separate buildings, which would include a Government Center and a Judicial Center.
