Town Hall and Police Station
Voters authorized the Town to issue Public Safety and Services Facilities Bonds totaling up to $12 million. The bonds are to be used for acquiring, constructing, expanding and renovating facilities to be used by the Town for municipal services and for acquisition of related land, rights of way and equipment.
These bonds have funded the police headquarters at 912 7th Ave., which opened in December 2015, and the new, 26,000-square-foot Town Hall, which opened in July 2017 at the site of the old municipal buildings at 900 7th Ave. The expanded space and upgraded technology at the new Town Hall will enable staff to provide timely and efficient service to residents as Garner grows in the coming decades. A key new feature of the building is consolidating Development Services departments and having one customer-service intake area for the departments on the first floor near the front entrance.
The first Town Council meeting in the new building was held on Aug. 7. A ribbon-cutting event (date yet to be determined) will be held after nearby roadwork is completed.
