TOWN HALL PROPOSAL: Following a meeting with Dewberry architects June 20, members of the Town Council are rethinking their decision on where to locate a new town hall amid concerns the preferred site adjacent to the Main Fire Station may be too small. About 20 residents attended the council study session to listen to the Dewberry presentation and offer their thoughts on the project.
