Months of renovations allowed the Town Council to meet for the first time at North Judson’s new Town Hall.
Clerk-Treasurer Donna Henry says it was nice to have the new facility in use.
“I think our meetings are going to be appreciated to be held there and we are looking forward to our move which should be in about two weeks or so,” says Henry.
The building was donated by First Farmers Bank and Trust after the Town Council accepted the donation in August of last year.
The Town initially hoped to have the offices of its Water Department and Clerk-Treasurer moved by the end of 2014. Delays in construction work pushed the move back to the first quarter of this year.
Henry says a few things have already been moved over.
“We just have some of our records that are in storage boxes,” says Henry. “The crew moved a lot of those over before we had the carpets cleaned and new carpets installed to try to keep it from muddying up the carpets.”
The Town of North Judson doesn’t expect the move to challenge residents. Henry says the meeting location is always posted at both the new and old Town Hall to prevent confusion.
