Patsy Parker’s busy season is coming up in November.

But the city’s voter registrar is likely to find things a little more hectic than usual next month, when her office is packed up and moved across town.

Pending the Suffolk City Council’s approval today, the registrar’s office will close to move from the historic Nansemond County Courthouse to its new home at 425 W. Washington St. Aug. 5-6. The office, located next the Morgan Memorial Library, will reopen for business Aug. 9.

After the registrar’s office is moved, the city will move ahead with plans to tear down the courthouse’s rear addition that until last December housed the Suffolk School Board.

Once the addition has been razed, the area will be made into a parking lot for the new Hilton Garden Inn and Suffolk Convention Center, under construction and scheduled to open in early 2005.
