Randolph gets new county building

September 30, 2006

Albany - - County workers in Randolph County now have an all-in-one building to operate out of. 

Just about all of the county departments will be housed in a brand new facility. They're moving out of the old county courthouse, which was built in 1894.

Since that time, no major renovations had been done to the building so county leaders said it was time for something new.

"We have a courthouse that's in a state of decay and we look forward to restoring that building as well to become an engine of commerce. In the meantime, we need a building in which the machinery of government in Randolph county can function and function well on a daily basis," says county Commission Chair Randolph Simmons.

The new courthouse and county center is 18,000 square feet. Randolph county leaders got the 1.8 million dollars to fund the building from a special option local sales tax.
