PEMBROKE, Ga. (WTOC) - It’s something the City of Pembroke said was a long time coming, their new City Hall building is complete.

For almost a year, the new city hall has been in the works. City employees said they’re excited because a lot of the old building was outdated.

“We were about a century behind here in Pembroke with technology and computers and everything,” said Pembroke Councilman Johnnie Miller.

The old building has been here since the 70′s so the city said it’s about time for an upgrade. Now, this will be a space for a renovated police department.

So when you stop by the new building right down the road, you’ll see some improvements.

“With all this open space and everything like that, some of our employees just don’t know how to act. It’s like Christmas for them. Christmas in October for them,” said Miller.

Like a drive through where people can pay bills. More space in general, including seating. You’ll also see new technology in the chambers. City employees say soon there might also be live streaming of council meetings, something the old building couldn’t accommodate.

As Bryan County continues to grow, the city said these enhancements will help them keep up.

“Pembroke’s on the move.”

The city will host an open house this coming Sunday from 3 to 5pm so you can see the new space.
