Greenwood city offices won’t open in their new location next week as planned.
Installing phone line has taken longer than expected, causing a delay for the move, deputy mayor Terry McLaughlin said. The city has set a tentative moving schedule, which will start around April 9, and city departments will open for business once they’ve moved, he said.
On April 9, the community development services and legal offices should start moving out of the city’s Emerson Avenue offices and into the renovated city building at 300 S. Madison Ave. On April 14, the finance office is scheduled to move; and on April 17, human resources, the mayor’s office and code enforcement will start moving.
The employees in each department will move most of their own office supplies and files and won’t have to wait for every department to move in to open, McLaughlin said.
“Once we’re in here and up and running, we’ll be doing business. (Residents) might have to walk by a dolly with a filing cabinet,” he said.
