"We’re actually making a commitment – it’s not a lot of money, but its money to make some cosmic improvements to make it more functional," Selectmen chair Robert Kimball said.
The $350,000 will go towards interior improvements to the building. It was approved as part of Article 6 - Norton's Capital Budget earlier this month. In total, the Capital Budget will total $1.5 million.
Kimball said the money for Town Hall will be spent to renovate the basement and move offices from the first floor to the basement. Additionally, the stage currently used for selectmen meetings will be removed and a more conventional meeting room will take its place.
"Certainly the employees here appreciate any renovation," selectman Timothy Giblin said.
"It’s not a lot of money but we think we can stretch it as far as we can," added Kimball.
