Brandon deciding on future of offices post-Irene

Posted: Updated:

BRANDON, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont community of Brandon is still trying to find a home for town offices following Tropical Storm Irene in 2011.

The town government has taken up temporary offices in the local fire station. But it must vacate by the end of the year.

The Rutland Herald reports the select board is considering a temporary move to the Markowski building several miles south of downtown.

Meanwhile, a group of volunteers led by three architects says repairs to the town offices could be done quickly with the $160,000 in insurance money available.

Architect Robert Black said the two-story building built in 1828 is structurally sound and needs only minor work to the exterior and slate roof. He said the interior flood damage isn't substantial.
