Council review plans for new town hall

    Town council has had a first peek at the plans of what a town hall would look like located in the current Drumheller Public Library and Civic Centre Building.
    Earlier this year, the Town of Drumheller began to looking into moving Town Hall to the downtown facility. The town was able to secure Municipal Sustainability Initiative (MSI) funds for the move.
    “My biggest thing is I am embarrassed when I walk into Town Hall. We have a Town Hall that is not handicapped accessible, that is just wrong,” said Mayor Terry Yemen.
    He adds, the Civic Centre is a much more modern facility.
    “The Civic Centre is a little bit of an older building, but it was not built in 1953. With the energy efficiency, we are going to save a lot just in operating the building,” said Yemen.
    While they now have preliminary drawings, and the approval to use MSI funds for the move, they have not completed the final costing for the project.
    Council is planning to share the plans with resident later on this month or in early November.
