LAGRANGE, GA (WTVM) - The City of LaGrange's city hall received a makeover.

A ribbon cutting was held Tuesday to celebrate the building's new renovations.

The city hall weathered major flooding back in December 2015 and city crews and engineers have been working hard making the repairs and updating the façade.

"It turned out to be a great day to reopen the front door of city hall. I think it's worth noting that this building was originally constructed and opened in 1926. So, for 92 years this building has served as the seat of government for the City of Lagrange," said Mayor Jim Thornton.

City officials were committed to retaining the original structure from 92 years ago.
