Afton gears up for vote on new Town Hall

AFTON The Town of Afton will vote Feb. 7 on whether to build a new town hall in conjunction with the re-construction of the highway department garage which was destroyed in the 2006 floods.



According to Supervisor John Lawrence, the proposition will contain two parts, the first being approval to actually begin the project, which would move the town hall and court system approximately one mile outside of the village into the same building as the new garage. The second part is the approval of a private sale bond from NBT for up to $400,000.

Currently, the town has $515,000 in FEMA aid to rebuild the garage, which sustained heavy damage in 2006. There is also $215,000 available in a capital building fund, a tax line specifically for construction of town offices, said Lawrence.
