    Town offices move

    Town offices located in the Academy Building in Central Square were set to be relocated this past week as a result of multiple leaks there that caused health and safety issues, said Town Manager Michael M. Dutton. In a statement last Monday, Dutton said the leaks “have increased in volume and have now created problems on all three levels of the building. Mold is now clearly present and virtually impossible to abate, and ceilings have fallen or are dangerously weakened.” The offices – Accounting, Planning, Zoning Board of Appeals/Conservation Commission, Information Technology, Inspectional Services, Health, town manager, and council clerk — were set to be moved to other municipal buildings. The town had originally intended to relocate some of the offices to the Memorial Building once planned repairs were completed to that building’s ceiling — now expected by mid-August — with other offices moving to various locations. Dutton said last week’s relocations were a temporary measure intended to accommodate the displaced offices until the more permanent moves are made. For more information, go to
