NORWICH – At the last City of Norwich Public Works and Public Safety meeting, the committee discussed plans to move the city hall headquarters from its current location in the old train depot, next door to the third floor of the firehouse.
Deborah DeForest, the city’s director of human resources, presented a draft of possible plans for the new office space. Changes to those plans have already been made since Thursday night’s meeting. Some of the aldermen were upset because a room designated for their use had been removed. One of the changes included adding that room back in to the plans. Without considering the changes, the proposed cost of the project is $375,000 in addition to the funds already used to renovate the fire station.
