Fulton County Schools celebrates a milestone in the construction of their new North Maintenance Facility.

Wednesday they held a Topping Out celebration which is typically when the last beam or final roofing piece is placed.

The 34,000 square foot facility is funded by the one-penny education sales tax and will house the team that responds to maintenance calls from more than 60 schools on the north side of Fulton County.

Officials say a similar facility is under construction in Fairburn to serve the south Fulton County community.
