Kilmarnock’s Town Council voted on Monday to acquire property for a new town hall at a price that some members claimed would be more cost-efficient than maintaining the current facility.
Council voted 4-2 in favor of buying the Bay Trust Property on 1 South Main St. in downtown Kilmarnock for $729,500.
Council also voted to take immediate steps to sell the property currently occupied by the existing town hall which reportedly has an assessed value of $334,000, with the proceeds from that sale to be put toward the cost of the new building.
