Blooming Grove – “Up On The Roof”
Workers braved the single digit cold and wind on Monday to repair the Town Hall’s massive skylight. The skylight began to crumble into the meeting room several months ago. Installed in 1990 it was given an estimated 15-year lifespan, and had weathered just over 28 years of pounding rain and snow. Town employees did much of the work in order to save on costs. An ongoing discussion has residents and officials weighing the benefits of its beauty and having the sunlight stream in vs. keeping some kind of shade or drape across it to improve acoustics in the room.
