County Commissioners Approve Funding For Fire House & GSP Re-location

The Carroll County Board of Commissioners Tuesday approved the construction of the new fire station at Tyus-Carrollton Road. That is estimated to cost about $700,000 and come out of Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax funding.
Inmate construction crews could begin that project this week.
Commissioners also approved the purchase of a former bank building along Hwy 61 that will be used to re-locate the Georgia State Patrol Post 4, from its current location on Hwy 78.
Carroll County Commission Chairman Marty Smith says it is a benefit to keep the post in Carroll County because the office also offers the first line of support to the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office.
“Square footage-wise they’ll have almost 13,000 square feet which will allow them to do more training, host investigators from other posts, plus the DNR and other offices will be there,” Smith said. “They are getting a lot more square footage than what they will initially need but it will allow for growth and give them a great home for the future.
