SHERMAN, Texas (KTEN) — The first steps are being taken to build a new city hall in Sherman.

The City Council on Tuesday gave the green light to advertise for a construction manager for the project. That person will be in charge of developing plans for the building at 221 West Mulberry Street.

Sherman's current City Hall, in use since 2000, is a one-story building that had formerly served as a post office. The building cannot accommodate all city agencies. 

Officials expects to break ground early next year for the new city hall, adjacent to the current facility.
