Monroe Office of State Dept. of Labor Closing

Monroe employees, along with some from Alberton, will likely be relocated to the Athens, Ga. career center or the Covington office.

The Georgia Department of Labor is closing some of its offices to save money, and employees from Elberton and perhaps Monroe will be moving to the Athens Career Center, the department announced Thursday.

According to news releases, employees in Monroe will move either to Athens or Covington and nine employees working in Elberton will shift to Athens, effective July 1.

In addition to Elberton and Monroe, the labor department plans not to renew office leases in Blairsville, Camilla, Eastman, Kings Bay, and Northwest Georgia in Ft. Oglethorpe.
