Future is bright for Hollis Town Hall
During Monday night’s Hollis Board of Selectmen meeting, Town Administrator Troy Brown said a portion of the building’s new siding had been completed, and trim and the top of the clock tower have been painted.
During the March town meeting, voters approve exterior renovations at the historic Town Hall and in early June, selectmen unanimously awarded the project contract to Nashua construction firm D.K. King & Associates.
Money from the town’s $350,000 repairs fund also went toward the project, which includes the replacement of aging paint and siding.
Sharing an old photograph of the Hollis Town Hall, Sullivan said the building was originally a darker color but was painted white in the 1950s.
Following the July hearing, selectmen said they received approximately 40 emails urging them to paint Town Hall white and ultimately agreed to stick to the original plan.
“Right now, we’re looking good as far as the timeline goes,” Brown said this week. “Fortunately, the weather has been cooperative.”
