Town Hall Building Committee
On March 15, 2021 the Hamilton Board of Selectmen voted unanimously to add the Hamilton Town Hall Renovation Project to the May 1 Town Meeting Warrant and ballot on May 6. Town Hall Building Committee Chair Michael Twomey confirmed that the ask to taxpayers has been reduced to $3.4M, which is $1.2 million (27%) less than the request in 2020. The savings to taxpayers comes primarily from an additional $1M grant approved by the Hamilton Community Preservation Committee (CPC). With taxpayer approval, this project will be ready to break ground this Summer.
The Town Hall Building Committee was created by the Board of Selectmen to assist with developing alternatives for the repair and remodel of the Hamilton Town Hall. The Committee obtains and discusses the needs of the Community and the Town Manager, examines the estimates of the cost and the necessary time for the repair and remodel of the alternatives and the additional alternatives. The Committee reports regularly to the Board of Selectmen on the progress of the Committee and/or to request assistance. The Committee develops Warrant Article(s) for Town Meeting and Presentation(s) to support their recommendation.
The membership of the Building Committee shall include seven (7) Volunteers, the Town Manager, or his Designee, and another Town Hall Employee.
