Andover breaks ground on new municipal services building

November 21, 2017 by  

A groundbreaking ceremony was recently held in Andover for the new Municipal Services building.

Paul Salafia, chairman of the Board of Selectmen, said that he started working on this project 25 years ago when he was member of the Planning Board. He added that many people have been involved in the project to make sure it came to fruition.

Director of Municipal Services, Chris Cronin, said the new building will facilitate operations for the Municipal Services Department, consolidate divisions, enable employees to interact more with each other, and provide a place for the housing of vehicles, which will reduce costs by extending the life of the vehicles.

Deputy Director of Public Works, Marc Fournier, added that the new building will create more of a team environment, as all the operations for municipal services will now be centralized in one place. The building is expected to be completed before the winter of next year.

Salafia commented that the new building is located in the old Town Tard, opening up the opportunity to expand the business district downtown of Andover and provide for the town’s future economic development.

Brochure and booklet printing companies can be used to print a variety of materials outlining the services at facilities such as this one once they have opened and are fully operational.
