Crews and equipment preparing the 3.5-acre site for the new Tyrone Municipal Complex on Senoia Road are working around rainy days to set the stage for construction activities that will lead to the building’s completion later this year.

The 20,000 sq. ft. building will house Town Hall, the Tyrone Police Department and the Tyrone Municipal Court in order to better serve citizens into the future, said Mayor Eric Dial.

The building will be located directly across Senoia Road from Shamrock Park on 3.5 acres recently purchased from Harlie Deyton, whose home is located adjacent to the property.

The building will include a combined 97-seat council chambers and courtroom, various meeting spaces and extra office space to accommodate future growth.

“The true owners of this building are the taxpayers,” Dial said recently.

The new municipal complex is expected to open before the end of the year.

Another infrastructure project is occurring simultaneously. That project will have sewer lines installed south along Senoia Road to Tyrone Elementary School.
