Town Hall Grant
A big thank-you to former Town Hall Commissioner Garry Winget, who worked hard on a grant application to repair the downstream wall of Town Hall. A grant has been won by the Town! The grant money, along with the Town's matching funds, will pay for the repairs required to restore the cracked foundation wall at Town Hall. Thanks to all those who wrote letters in support of the grant and to Mr. Winget for his dedication to Pitkin's Town Hall.
