Public forum on city hall's fate tonight

NORWICH – City residents will have an opportunity to voice their opinion of the proposed renovation or relocation of City Hall tonight at a special Common Council meeting and public forum, to be held following the 6 p.m. Finance and Personnel meeting in the council chambers at One Court Plaza.



The project, which has been up for discussion repeatedly since 2004, involves an estimated $400,000 renovation of the current City Hall and its deteriorating roof versus the relocation of City Hall offices to the third, and part of the first, floors of the adjacent firehouse, costing approximately $436,000.

Neither proposal would have any significant impact on the local tax levy, according to City Clerk and Director of Finance William Roberts, as the city’s Building-Capital Projects and Capital Reserves would absorb the majority of the costs.
