Waterbury to hold pre-meeting on complex plans

Posted: Updated:
WATERBURY, Vt. -

There will be a public meeting Tuesday morning in Waterbury before town meeting begins.

The town is considering a plan to buy two buildings in the old Waterbury office complex from the state, to house several municipal offices.  The old building was damaged by flooding from Irene and has not been used since.  

Waterbury Municipal Manager William Shepeluk said the meeting is required to gauge voter's support for the idea. "The reason for the public hearing -- we are considering applying for a Community Development Block Grant -- disaster recovery funds  -- and in order to apply you need to have a public meeting and we thought this was our best chance to get people out," he said.

The plan is to house the library, police department, municipal offices and eventually the historical society on two acres that include Stanley Hall.  The price of the project will be between 5 and 7 million dollars.  The public hearing is Tuesday at 9 a.m. at the Thatcher Brook School.
