St. Armand looks upstairs for more office space

The town of St. Armand is considering plans to update its town hall.

Supervisor Joyce Morency said during a town board meeting Wednesday that the town is running out of space. She said the upstairs of the town hall, which now houses records, could be fixed up to provide office space.

Morency stressed that she would like to avoid taking on any new debt to complete the project, but said that expansion was something that needed to be addressed soon.

Board members are reviewing proposals from various local contractors that were submitted about three years ago.

Morency said the town would need to make arrangements to store records at another site. She also said the bricks on the turn of the century building need to be refurbished.

The upstairs portion of the town hall used to have a large stage, Morency said. She recalls square dancing and plays by the Girl Scouts being held there when she was growing up. The room was also used for large meetings.

The stage was removed years ago to bring the building up to state code, according to Morency.

Also of note at last week's meeting, Ray Scollin was appointed on Wednesday to serve as the town's health officer, a position he holds in the town of Harrietstown as well.
