BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - Decatur County Commissioners vote to eliminate two county positions, in an effort to save money.
The Bainbridge Building Department staff will now take over the duties of the building official, and administrative assistant positions.
Bainbridge employees will continue to perform their regular duties in addition to the new jobs.
"We have a duty and an obligation to provide the best service that we can possibly to our citizens, and do it in the most cost effective manner, and that's what we intend to do," said Alan Thomas, Decatur County Administrator.
The city of Bainbridge staff will take on the new duties on March 1st.
