NEW CANAAN, Conn. – The town will spend more than $131,000 to prepare temporary office space for New Canaan employees being relocated in advance of a major renovation at Town Hall.
The Board of Selectmen voted Tuesday to approve contracts to set up offices for town employees at the Stewart office complex on Elm Street and on the second floor of the New Canaan Police Department on South Avenue. More than $67,000 will go for partitions for the second floor of Police Headquarters, and about $18,000 will pay for wiring for the Stewart offices.
A boiler failure at Town Hall in March has made it critical that employees be moved out of the building before cold weather sets in. The move may begin sometime in August.
Public Works Director Mike Pastore said employees may not return to Town Hall for about two years.
