Project Praised By Vis
itors During
Open House Event
Hertford's new municipal -building
was officially opened last Monday and
Tuesday nights when open house was
observed and a large number of citi
zens turned out to inspect the new
building. ." ' " I
Mayor V. N. Darden and Com- j
missioners ,W. H. Hardcastte, Henry
C. Sullivan, Ray White and Robert
L. Holloweiil and Iformer Commission
ers 'B. C Berry and M. ff. Gregory
acted as hosts at the event and show
ed the visitors around the building.
All the visitors expressed praise
for the arrangement and beauty of the
building, which contains three large
office spaces, and a central heating
room. The walls of the offices are
of cypress paneling which adds
distinctive beauty to the interior.
The floors are covered with asphalt
tile. -
On entering the building one comes
to a large lobby, off of which are
offices for the police department, the
town clerk and town board. Large
closet space is also provided in each
of the three rooms, and a disappear
ing stairway leads into the attic, fin
ished off to provide storage space for
old records. '
Long planned, the municipal build
ing is now a reality. A start toward
the building was made about 10 years
ago when the town purchased the Bar
row property, site of the building.
About a year ago the town held an
election to determine a bond issue
for the construction of a much larger
building and when this boad issue pro-
DOaal wan vnlmi Arsam IMhto hmn Iknnwl
proceeded to draw. plans for the con-!
struction of the present building.
Cost of the building is estimated at
about $25,000, which in the opinion of
many, is a reasonable figure. Actual
cost, is to be .announced upon, con
clusion of the audit of the town books
sometime in the near future.
Members "of the Town Board -mil
thorized Mayor Darden and Conoiis
sioner HoHoweU to serve as a com
mittee on the project, and under the
supervision of these two officials a
lfw?B4 was effected on the con
wruction cost
I All business of the town is now be
ing Carried on at the new building;
ana anaiviauais who aid not visit the
building during open house are in
