The Town of Battleford will invest up to $20,000 to make exterior upgrades to the historic town hall building after ear-marking funds for the project in this year’s budget.
The issue came up at council’s recent meeting.
“It’s been identified as we’re going forward here that some immediate small maintenance needs to be done to the town hall with the bricks,” Mayor Ames Leslie said.
He said the town was able to find some savings to get the job done.
“Initially we were told we would need to spend about $600,000 to salvage the bricks immediately,” he said.
