Castleton Voters Reject New Town Office Proposal

By Amy Kolb Noyes

For the third time in a year, voters in Castleton have rejected a proposal for new town offices.

Nearly two years ago, mold and other safety issues forced municipal officials to move out of the town office – a historic red brick building they’d used for over fifty years. Ever since, local residents have been at odds over how to move forward – with some wanting to restore the old building while others prefer to have a new, more energy efficient one.

This Town Meeting Day voters were asked to spend just over one million dollars to build a new 45-hundred square foot office building west of the village off route 30.
