The City of Rome has announced plans to purchase the nearly eight acres of property that belongs to Manco at the intersection of Technology Parkway and Redmond Road.

The $2 million purchase will be used to build out a new City of Rome Police Department.   The City also expects to spend $690,000 to renovate the property.

Manco will move to Cedartown Highway and expand its business in the process.

Reports said that they will expand into the Summerville market as well as ones in Tennessee and North Carolina.

The new location on Cedartown Highway will include warehouse space as well as semi-truck parking.
