A fresh start for Rowley Town Hall

Rowley Town Hall is getting a face-lift. You may have noticed the large cranes and workers at the Main Street building that houses the town offices.

The project, which is costing a little more than $160,000, will see the cupola repaired by Meadows Construction for $97,000 and the second-floor custom windows in the auditorium replaced for $65,000. The cost is being covered by the Community Preservation Act fund.

Town Administrator Deborah Eagan said the project, which was approved at town meeting, is expected to be completed within 120 days.
