It’s been a long time coming, but Solon Township finally has their new township hall at 15185 Algoma, between 18 and 19 Mile.
They moved from their old hall on 19 Mile at the end of May.
“It’s not completely finished but we’re getting there,” said Solon Supervisor Bob Ellick.
The township approved the building of the 6,000 square-foot hall with community room in the fall of 2011. The building has 4,000 square feet of offices, a 2,000 square-foot community room, in floor boiler heat, 2×6 exterior sidewalls, about four inches of spray foam insulation, a brick exterior, steel roof, LED lighting which operates automatically, some heated sidewalks, plenty of handicap parking, and a security system with cameras that can be viewed remotely.
They will be renting out the community room to residents, but not until after their open house, which is scheduled for Saturday, July 27 from 1-4 p.m. Refreshments will be provided.
Ellick estimates the total of the building will be between $860,000 and $880,000.
