Selectmen defends plan for Knights of Columbus building


Selectman John Connolly defended the idea of using a Knights of Columbus building as the town’s new senior center, saying it would save money. At a recent selectmen’s meeting, Connolly reponded to published criticism of the cost of renovations by saying the project was never billed as being ready for immediate use as a senior center. The building was purchased for about $450,000 and will require about $1.5 million in renovations, but that’s far less than building a new center for $4 million to $9 million, he said.
