City Police makes a move

PELHAM, GA (WALB) - Pelham Police chief says that it wasn't financially making sense to stay in the old building.

Chief Nealie McCormick says the old location was costing them about four thousand dollars per month in electricity.

This new building has them spending about three thousand dollars less.

McCormick did say that the move was a request of the residents there.

"There was some complaints about the old office was behind a lot of razor wire and fencing and people and people wanted easier access," McCormick said.

Part of the new office was vacant and city owned that's why it was easy to move in. They plan to be completely moved in by the end of the month.
