DA 's office moves into new building

It was another day of sweltering temperatures Tuesday.

It was also moving day for the Toombs District Attorney's Office.

The DA's office became the first agency to take up occupancy in the new McDuffie County Government Center.

As with most moves, there were snags, questions and general confusion.

"Tough," District Attorney Dennis Sanders said Tuesday morning. "Hopefully we'll be able to get all the glitches out."

He wondered if there would be room for all the bookshelves he and his staff need.

"These rooms are so much smaller than what we have over there," he said, referring to the old offices on Central Avenue. "Lawyers have lots of books."

The office has five assistant DAs, three victim assistants, three clerical workers and an investigator. Sanders says he also has two interns working in the office this summer.

The courts and the Superior Court clerk's office will be the next to move. They will relocate in early to mid-July.

The combined government center, located on 20.6 acres on Railroad Street, will house courtrooms and chambers as well as city/county and local state offices.

The $20 million project was funded by Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax dollars.
