Macon, Bibb HR departments begin merging | Politics |

For more than a year, officials from Macon and Bibb County knew they were going to have to prepare to merge the staffs of most of its departments to be ready for the Jan. 1 consolidation of the two entities.

The process isn’t a simple one. Not only did officials have to try to figure out the best use of space for different departments, prepare that space for the transition and physically move the workers’ effects, but they also had to do so while keeping those offices open.

The first big domino of the merger took place this week as the staffs of the city and county Human Resources Departments began moving into refurbished space on the fourth floor of the City Annex building at the corner of Cherry and First streets.

Chris Floore, spokesman for Macon Mayor Robert Reichert, said other departments scheduled to move into the annex this week include risk management and purchasing. The finance departments will merge into the existing city finance offices at Macon City Hall early next week.

The moves will allow the Bibb County Courthouse to be used exclusively for court-related business.

“The intent for the courthouse is for it to be a courthouse,” Floore said. “That’s the ultimate goal.”
