It was the third time voters have been asked in recent years to renovate the decaying town hall — also known as Brewster Memorial Hall — that it had purchased in 2004 for $1 from the John Brewster Trust.
Town Manager David Owen, who has worked with the board of selectmen on two prior warrant articles asking for renovation funding, said voters this time were likely swayed by the $750,000 in private donations raised by the Friends of Wolfeboro Town Hall.
Owen said there is much planning to be done before town hall workers actually pack up and move to interim town offices at the Huggins Hospital complex. A $50,000 warrant article to cover costs to set up those interim offices was also approved, 1,152 to 545.
