VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –The City of Valdosta unveiled it's new utilities department building Friday.

City leaders had a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the state of the art facility. Eighty Administrative, water, sewer, stormwater, and meter reading division employees will now be in one place.

The more than 11,000 square foot building has been in the works for 10 years.

"It's great because we've had our different groups working out of different areas in the city," said Henry Hicks, the City of Valdosta Utilities Director. "We get to bring everybody under one roof. It improves communication. It makes a lot more efficient in how we do our work."

The building has the latest technology to conserve water and energy.
