No new committee needed to study Town House options

Feb 27, 2017

To the Editor:

We are writing to express our belief that keeping the historic Town House as the center of community activities is the optimum choice for preserving our way of life in beautiful Marion.

First of all, we should realize that the Town House Building Committee is the one with the most concrete suggestions, not only for preserving Marion’s link to the past with our Town House, but the best way to insure the most expedient and visibly appealing town hall for the least expense. Let us allow the opinions of those with solid knowledge be considered. All of us should reread the letter of Feb. 14, “Town House Renovations Questions,” submitted by the Building Committee for clarification. This document corrects many misleading statements.

Secondly our Village is the center of most of the activities in town and must be viable for the needs of our residents. Crossing Route 6 is dangerous for all and especially for our senior citizens. Safety and easy access for town business should be a priority for everyone. We do not need to spend $35,000 for a new committee to study other options.


Bob and Jean Maher,
