Hall County voters have decided to keep the county's weed board but merge the assessor and register of deeds offices in a cost-saving move.

Voters on Tuesday rejected the idea of dissolving the weed board, which carries out the state's noxious weed law.

Of the two cost-savings proposals, merging the assessor and deeds offices had the bigger savings. The consolidation, however, won't happen right away.

The assessor and the register of deeds were both elected to four-year terms that started in 2011. Supervisor Chairwoman Pam Lancaster says no merger will take place until after the 2014 election, when a dual-role official is elected. That official will be in charge of consolidating the offices.
