Maiden approves town hall
After more than two years of planning, budgeting and ups and downs, it appears Maiden will build a new town hall.
Maiden’s town council voted 4-1 Wednesday in favor of building a new $2 million town hall.
The final approval comes only 24 days after three council members voiced opposition to the plans during a regularly scheduled meeting.
It will cost Maiden about $2.1 million to build the 14,000-square-foot town hall. In addition to a town council chambers and two meeting rooms, the new headquarters will feature a food preparation and kitchen area, extra storage space and a personal office for the mayor.
The town hall will be about four times larger than Maiden’s current, 3,000-square-foot headquarters.
