Five months from now, Solon Township residents will have a new township hall. Site work began this week at 15185 Algoma.
The new township hall will be approximately 6,200 square feet, with a large community room that will hold 125 people. According to Supervisor Bob Ellick, the cost of the project is estimated to be about $784,000. The township saved up the bulk of the money, then borrowed $200,000 toward the project.
The township offices, currently located on 19 Mile, just west off Algoma, will move to the new building, which is due to be completed January 13.
Solon bought the 19-acre horse farm two years ago in a tax foreclosure sale for $28,378.
