On May 10, 2016 the Newington Town Council passed resolutions to disband the former Town Hall Renovations Project Building Committee and to establish a new Town Hall Renovations Project Building Committee, comprised of 7 members (5 members of the public and 2 Town Council representatives). The Committee is charged to work with the Town Manager and other appropriate Town staff in the oversight of renovations and/or modifications to the Town Hall, including the Mortensen Community Center and shall do such work in accordance with Chapter 8, Article X (Project Building Committees) of the Code of Ordinances; to maintain ongoing collaboration with the Library Expansion Public Building Committee in order to coordinate the designs of both projects and eliminate redundancies and to remain mindful of taxpayer concerns.
