Despite the cold temperatures this month, Wellesley Town Hall has shed a layer. Much of the envelope protecting exterior work on the 1880s building has been removed, providing a much better backdrop for photos of the holiday symbols situated in front of it.
Town Meeting this past spring unanimously approved $576K in additional funding to support the renovation. Work began in mid-2018 to shore up interior and exterior degradation of the building.
Also in the plans: A Town Hall annex to be built next to the Wellesley Fire Station on Rte. 9.
