City on the move


After decades of discussion and more than two years of planning, city of River Falls employees relocated to the newly constructed 26,000-square-foot City Hall at 222 Lewis St. Friday and Monday.

Finance Director Julie Bergstrom said a contractor helped moved boxes Thursday from the old to new city halls.

While city offices were closed Friday and Monday, everything and everyone else, except the police and fire departments, made their move from one building to the other.
