City divisions swap office locations to improve efficiency
Effective Oct. 27, 2010, the Animal Health and Public Safety Division's administrative offices, presently located at 4900 Swope Parkway on the first floor, will move to 2534 Prospect Ave. The Dangerous Buildings and Vacant Property Division, presently located at 2534 Prospect Ave., will relocate to the first floor of 4900 Swope Parkway.
The two offices swapped in an effort to enhance City efficiency and provide better code enforcement.
"Your city government is working every day to become more efficient and more effective," said Mayor Mark Funkhouser. "The willingness of these two divisions to move is typical of a new ‘residents first’ attitude in City Hall."
