Residents who attend New Whiteland Town Council meetings or drop by the town’s offices to pay their sewer bills will go to a new building in the fall.
By October, the town will move its police department, council chambers and town hall offices into a small center on Tracy Road that currently houses the New Whiteland Veterans of Foreign Wars Post and an accounting firm.
New Whiteland is consolidating its offices and police department in the roughly 5-year-old building, which the town is buying for $535,000, as a less-expensive alternative to renovating its older buildings. Updating the current offices would cost about $850,000, town manager Terry Spencer said. The town is paying for the new building and some renovations out of the $4.5 million it earned selling its water utility.
