STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) — The city of Starkville is making progress on constructing the new City Hall.
Demolition began Thursday morning, demolishing the old electric department building.
The old structure sat on Miegs Street for more than 60 years.
Crews will be hauling off what's left of the old structure, and a new $6.75 million structure will go up over the next 18 months.
Plans call to have everything but the police department going into the new building.
Police will stay in the current City Hall, which will be renovated.
