Town residents voted Monday, July 29, at a special town meeting to borrow up to $600,000 for an addition and remodeling of the present town hall. The vote was 54-6 in favor of borrowing the funds and 55-6 in favor of the addition and remodeling.
The Town Board proposed the project for several reasons, with insufficient size a major problem. The town can seat 34 people in the building according to fire codes, and the town has a population of about 5,500.
Town Chair John Holdridge said the town hall has five major functions as the center of town government and activity in the Hull community, a center for representative democracy, a service center, a staff hub, a voting center and a community center.
