Head of the Harbor Village Hall gets cleaning, new paint after repairs

Head of the Harbor's Village Hall interior has been steadily updated over the past year and is now about a get a new look, with exterior cleaning and repainting slated for the fall.

Mayor Douglas A. Dahlgard said it's time for these repairs to take place and that a poorly maintained building doesn't inspire confidence about the village.

"It is the face of the village," said Dahlgard. "My philosophy is that the village has to look really good to be appealing and the residents deserve that."

Dahlgard said he is putting together a bid proposal, which would then be put before the village board of trustees for a final vote.

The mayor said it "made more sense" to use borrowed funds instead of village operating funds.

August's warm temperatures make painting difficult, so the revamp will likely be scheduled for early fall, Dahlgard said.

The repairs and repainting follow other enhancements including re-carpeting, security light installation, carpentry fixes and computer upgrades.
