Suwanee municipal court temporarily moves to city hall

Suwanee’s Municipal Court has moved across Town Center Park to City Hall, 330 Town Center Avenue to make room for renovations and an addition to its existing building at 323 Buford Highway.

The almost 60-year-old building, Suwanee’s original city hall, will be receiving a much-needed facelift that is expected to significantly improve the court customer experience and create more space for court and police employees. The lobby will be expanded to accommodate court session crowds, court clerk work space will more than double, and new space will be constructed for the police Special Enforcement Unit.

Construction is expected to begin in late spring or early summer. Court sessions will take place at City Hall and a clerk will be availanle to handle payments and routine questions. Day-to-day court functions will take place at the police station. Renovations are expected to be complete by early 2020. Questions: Mariza Abdeljawad at 678-546-2134.
