The Town of Lincoln Board will give residents a progress report on its future town hall when it meets on Monday. Discussion of replacing its current town hall, which currently lacks running water and disability accessibility, has been constant since the board announced its plans at its 2017 annual meeting. The board had to scrap its original plan of directly hiring local contractors for the project because state statute mandates projects like town halls to get bid out. Town chairperson Cory Cochart says it is likely they will look for someone to take on that process.
Cochart hopes they can start construction in spring 2019. The board will also look to extend its moratorium on building new or expanding existing livestock facilities and give an update on its ongoing dispute with Stonehouse Water Technologies during its Monday meeting at the Lincoln Town Hall beginning at 7 p.m.
