Low Cost Project To
House Governmental :
Offices Only
- Hertford's Town Board has reopen-'
ed the possibilities of constructing a
municipal building for the town gov
ernment, it was reported following
the regular meeting of the Commis
sioners last Monday night During
the,' meeting the Cohimissioners dis
cussed the project, and reached agree
ment to obtain preliminary plans and
estimates as to the cost of the build
ing.' '
Under the present plan, the Board
considers the construction of a small,
low cost , building, to be located on
the town lot on Grubb Street. The
building, if and when constructed, will
contain offices for the Mayor and
Council, town clerk and police de
partment ,
It was the opinion of the Board,
the project can be completed from
surplus funds accumulated during the
past several years, and a small sur
plus expected during the current fiscal
year. The plan, according to the
belief of the Commissioners, will not
entail an increase in the town's tax
rate. .
The voters of Hertford rejected a
measure earlier this year calling for
a bond issue to finance the construc
tion of a municipal building on a larg
er scale. ; . ;
Reconsideration of the proposal was
brought about by the needs of the
town for sufficient space to "house the
offices of the town officials. Pres
ent facilities are not adequate for
the handling of the three main town
departments, and it has been agreed
by the Commissioners the construc
tion of a municipal building is a neces- ,
sity. ; ;; '
If arrangements are completed for :
the construction ' of the building, it
was reported that the Board hopes
to have construction started about 1
next March.
Other business handled during the
meeting Monday night included the
approval of the election to the Hert
ford Fire Department of three new
members, ; George Fields, Bobby El
liott and: JChafles Harrell.;, ,
'A delegation, representing the Hert
ford Junior Chamber of Commerce,
appeared before the Board requesting
a contribution to the Perquimans Band
fund, and this request was granted in
the amount Of $75.00. '
