Town Hall Update December 2017

The last couple of months have been filled with much activity at the new Town Hall site.  The progress made is quite obvious as we can now see the completed stacked retaining walls behind the building site.  A rock swale has been created on the north side to carry water away from the building and the well water line has been buried to the building site.  Excavation of the crawl space area and foundation is complete and the building foundation should be completed by the end of December.

The actual building should start taking shape after the first of the year!  Exciting times as our new Town Hall becomes a reality!
