The $2.43 million dollars which resides in a capital reserve fund can only be used for a new town hall. The money has been saved since 2007 from landfill revenue and an insurance settlement following the arson fire.Wednesday’s vote count was close, 481 voted “no” to 433 “yes”.The original Town Hall was damaged in an arson fire in 2004, and since then the town offices have moved twice.
