As of Friday, Greenwood’s city hall of about 30 years will be empty, and residents who want to talk to the mayor, pay their sewer bill or request a building permit will find the city offices at a new address.

Community development services, the legal department, finance office, human resources, code enforcement and the mayor’s office all should be working from the new city hall — the former Presnell building at Main Street and Madison Avenue — by the end of this week.

Greenwood opted to spend about $4.6 million to overhaul the 47,000-square-foot Presnell tower, which has enough office space for the employees who worked in the old city building and those in offices on Emerson Avenue.
