NORWICH – The vacant third floor of the Norwich fire house is nearing completion of an extensive interior overhaul, but city officials still aren’t sure what the newly renovated space will be used for when it’s finished.
Renovations of the third floor have been underway for weeks, with construction crews installing electrical wiring and LED lights, doing drywall repair, updating the bathrooms, and putting in a drop ceiling. Carpeting will also be installed.
The project is made possible by state grant funds which were awarded to the city last fall. Funds come by way of the State and Municipalities Capital Program which assists cities, towns and villages throughout the state with upgrades and maintenance projects for buildings and other municipal infrastructure. Last October, State Senator Tom Libous (R-52nd Senatorial District) announced that $100,000 was secured for the City of Norwich.
