The Murray City Council has authorized a big move for the city hall and police department. In a special meeting Monday night, the council ruled in favor to move city hall into the former BB&T building downtown and move the police department into the current city hall. The resolution says both agencies needed more space. City council member Linda Cherry said the plan has been “in the talks” for a while.
