CORDELE, GA (WALB) -  Georgia Labor Commissioner Mark Butler made it official Thursday in announcing his department will open a satellite office in Cordele after closing its career center last week.

 A location for the satellite office still has to be found and other details including levels of service offered still have to be determined before the center can open.

 The decision comes after Butler met in Cordele with state representative Buddy Harden, DOT board member Johnny Floyd, city manager Edward Beach and city engineer Steve Fulford.  State Senator Greg Kirk also spoke on the telephone with Butler about the satellite office.

“After discussing their concerns, I agreed to open a satellite office to provide some employment services to local residents who are unable to travel to Americus,” said Butler. “These local leaders get all of the credit for our decision.”

 The Cordele Career Center has merged with the facility in Americus and will serve Crisp, Dooly, Macon, Marion, Schley, Sumter, Taylor and Webster counties.
