WARNER ROBINS -- Warner Robins Mayor Chuck Shaheen and council members have planned a Wednesday ribbon cutting ceremony for the newest city-owned building, according to the citys Facebook page.
The ceremony will be held at 9:30 a.m. at 112 Armed Forces Blvd., the new location for Thrifty Car Rental.
The citys Redevelopment Agency board paid to construct the new building on Armed Forces Boulevard -- formerly North First Street -- to replace the former location that was bulldozed for law enforcement center construction. The board inherited the businesss lease when it purchased land for the new police headquarters.
The board designed the small Thrifty building with the same materials as the law enforcement center in an effort to kick start an aesthetic city officials want continued down the Watson Boulevard corridor.
City Council loaned the Redevelopment Agency $175,000 in November for the new building. According to RDA Executive Director Gary Lee, the project cost $144,726.
The board will pay the city back with Thriftys rent.
