The Hall County Elections Department will temporarily relocate to the fourth floor of the Hall County Government Center as the replacement of the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system at that facility continues.
The Elections Department will begin operating out of the fourth floor beginning Monday, Dec. 6. Anyone seeking assistance with election-related issues can visit with Elections staff in person on the fourth floor or by calling 770-531-6945 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
“We look forward to serving citizens in this temporary location as we approach another busy election season,” Hall County Elections Director Lori Wurtz said. “We appreciate voters’ patience and flexibility as construction at the government center continues.”
Meanwhile, Board of Commissioners Work Sessions, Voting Meetings and Planning Commission Meetings will continue to be held at the Gainesville Civic Center through the month of January. Those meetings have been held at the alternate site since October, when the HVAC replacement project began. Construction on the second floor of the government center, where those meetings typically take place, was originally set for completion at the end of the year; however, that timeline has been extended due to construction delays.
As a reminder, in addition to attending the meetings in-person, citizens will also have the option of viewing video recordings of these meetings on the County’s website the day following the meeting. Live streaming will not be available during this period while meetings are held outside of the government center; however, public comment will still be received online at www.hallcounty.org/onlinemeetings.
More updates regarding temporary department relocations and how construction may affect the public will be made available as the project continues.
