Town Hall and Library Building Maintenance

The Town Hall and Library will be open during maintenance. 

The Town of Voluntown has received a STEAP Grant to help us with much needed building maintenance on the Town Hall and Voluntown Public Library.

The STEAP Grant project includes upgrades and repairs to the Voluntown Public Library and the Town Hall, and an addition of an outdoor community space in the land between the two buildings. This project is funded with a $300,000 STEAP grant and a $75,000 matching funds from the town which have been assigned to capital projects.

Work has begun on the Town Hall. The chimney was removed and capped off, The brick work is currently being repointed. This is to help with the flooding and mold remediation in the basement. The next phase will be to remove and replace the Town Hall copper plumbing with PEX and to upgrade the bathrooms to ADA compliant. Other parts of the project include removing the underground oil tank that was used by both the library and the town hall, bringing the side door to the Town Hall up to ADA compliance, redoing the sidewalks to the town hall and library, creating an outdoor patio space between the library and town hall, mold remediation in the town hall and library.

During these projects there will unfortunately be inconveniences to accessing the Town Hall and the Library, and we apologize for this as we will remain open to the public at all times.
