HALIFAX -- The Selectboard approved a contract with a roofing company for $17,000 that will address the west side of the facility that houses the Halifax School and Town Offices.

Selectboard Chairman Lewis Sumner said that section of roof is in pretty bad shape.

"It's been a number of years since they re-roofed it. So they're putting in new roofing on it," he added. "The other side was done about three years ago."

The roof on the west side of the building will be worked on once school is out and before it starts again in September. It covers a section of the school as well as the Town Offices.

The town will pay for this project. Sumner told the Reformer the board opened two bids but the other bid was approximately twice as much as the one awarded.

At the same meeting on June 3, the Selectboard discussed a potential traffic study for the proposed quarry project. Its funding remains a question for board members.

A representative from the Windham Regional Planning Commission will attend a meeting to discuss the study that residents want conducted. They had voiced concern that large trucks would have a negative impact on noise.
