Alabaster City Schools moves into new City Hall

After a few months of housing an ever-growing central office staff in a relatively small office condominium off Alabama 119, Alabaster City Schools officials now have more room to breathe.

“We are so excited. This building fits our needs perfectly,” Alabaster School superintendent Dr. Wayne Vickers said on Sept. 18 of the new Alabaster City Hall building. “It allows us some more work space and more storage space.”

The ACS central office completed its move from the office condominium on Alabama 119 to the new City Hall, which is off 11th Avenue next to the Alabaster Senior Center, on Sept. 17.

All central office telephone numbers and email addresses remained the same after the move, but visitors now should come to the new City Hall, Vickers said.

“Just walk in City Hall, and we are the only ones on the second floor,” Vickers said.

The central office is the new building’s first full-time tenant, as Alabaster is working to move its administrative offices, building services and other departments into the new building this week.

The first official day the entire new City Hall will be open is Sept. 23.

City administrative offices will vacate the upper floor of the current City Hall off U.S. 31, leaving the entire building for the Alabaster Police Department to use.

“We are very appreciative of the City Council, the mayor and the city for allowing us to lease the second floor,” Vickers said. “There aren’t many school systems our age that have a central office space this nice.”
