Members of the Bibb County Commission and their friends and family gathered at Macon's Terminal Station to celebrate the end of an era.
The celebration brought current and past members of the commission together to share stories and celebrate their service to Bibb County. Consolidation means that both the city and county governments will cease to exist and will be replaced with a new governmental structure.
"It's bitter sweet for me but the bottom line is, it's the best thing that could happen to Bibb County we're going to be one, Macon and Bibb County will be as one." -- Joe Allen, Bibb County Commissioner
Two of the five current commissioners will serve in the new government.
