The Griffin Board of Commissioners on Tuesday voted 6-0 to approve a contract with Norred & Associates of Atlanta to provide an armed security guard to be stationed 52.5 hours a week in Customer Service at an annual cost of $61,097.40. The annual agreement begins July 1, and renews automatically each year with a 3 percent increase unless otherwise negotiated or changed in writing.
Commissioner Dick Morrow said the move will save the city about $30,000 annually. Currently a police officer is stationed in Customer Service at 100 S. Hill St.
