What it means: Deputy Mayor Ed Mitro gave a brief presentation on the ordinance. “The original ordinance had language written such that the funds from the sale of the old (town hall) building could be used for renovations,” he said. “We broadened that out.

Those funds’ purpose is for improvements or enhancements to town hall or paying down any of the debt.”
