Auburn’s Mayor, City Council and Downtown Development Authority are inviting the public to a groundbreaking ceremony for the new City Hall and Municipal Complex Oct. 14.

Shuttles will begin arrival at 2:30 p.m. with the program and refreshments beginning at 3 p.m. Parking and shuttles will be available from The Perry Rainey Center, 16 College St.

Due to the pandemic, those attending must RSVP to mwalker@cityofauburn-ga.org.

Funding for the new city hall is coming from a combination of land sold in excess of what is needed for the municipal complex and infrastructure, SPLOST, state loans and grants.
