Temple officials to consider plant demolition

Posted: Updated:
TEMPLE, Ga. -

Authorities in Temple say they are hoping to rebuild an old factory into a municipal complex in about a year.

Mayor Rick Ford tells The Times-Georgian that the City Council will discuss the issue Monday and potentially approve a bid for the work.

The town plans on demolishing the old Sewell Manufacturing Plant.

The 27,000-square-foot building was completed in the 1950s and was once a major employer. The city purchased the property in 2007.

Officials have proposed spending $1.5 million to turn the site into a new government building.
