Conyers is Constructing a New City Hall

City of Conyers voters approved a $13 million bond referendum on May 22, 2018 to construct a new city hall on O’Kelly Street to house city administrative offices as well as a new Municipal Court on the site of the existing city hall on Scott Street, along with improvements to the Conyers Police Department. The Conyers bond question was approved 62% of voters.
