At the March 14, 2023 Annual Town Meeting, the electorate (citizens) voted to approve the building of a new town hall on the existing site at a maximum cost of $823,000.
The financing for the town hall project is from ARPA funds in the amount of $411,229.06, existing Capital Funds in the amount of $212,291.68 and a one-time 2024 levy shift from the Road and Bridge Fund to the Capital Fund in the amount of $200,000.00.
There will be no property tax increases due to the building project.
As the lowest responsible bidder, with a bid of $630,380, RAM General Contracting was awarded the building project contract.
Demolition and excavation of the building.
Site work on the building project began.
While excavating for the new parking lot area, that was previously dirt, remnants of a small building were found buried. To maintain the integrity of the new parking lot, a soil expert engineer and the architect recommended removing the concrete and weathered dimensional lumber and back filling and compacting the area. A change order in the amount of $7,586 was approved by the board in a 4-1 vote. The board is closely monitoring the project budget and the project budget is still well-under the budget amount that was approved by the electorate (residents) at the March 2023 Annual Meeting.
