10 On Your Side got to go inside the new building when it opened. Different city departments are still in the process of moving into their new digs.  A city official said the building is way overdue.

“We really needed to decommission the old city hall,” the official said. “It was just getting too small and we also had 127 employees we needed to consolidate. We will make it better to serve people.”

The old building was more than 50 years old and had major structural issues. The new building cost about $24 million.
