Macon-Bibb merger group works on moving government offices | Politics | Macon.com

Two empty buildings recently bought by Bibb County will “start the dominoes falling” for shuffling offices in the new Macon-Bibb County consolidated government, architect Bob Brown told members of the consolidation task force Monday.

The Bibb County sheriff and tax commissioner can move into those buildings — the former Sears building at the corner of Third and Walnut streets, and the former Capital City Bank at 455 Walnut St. — when they’re renovated in early 2014, said Brown, of BTBB Architects, who has been studying office space for the consolidated government. Stored city and county records will go into the Sears building’s basement, he told the task force’s Facilities Committee.

Those moves will free up space for other offices in the Middle Georgia Regional Commission office, Bibb County Courthouse, Macon City Hall and City Hall Annex, Brown said.

At first, the task force was only talking about future uses for the courthouse, City Hall and City Hall Annex, he said. But to rearrange offices there, he also had to consider what might be moved to other buildings, especially with the coming merger of the Macon Police Department with the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office.
