North Kingstown's Old Town Hall

What in the world are we doing with this run down building that has been moved from the Cranston/Murphy Funeral Home to Wickford Elementary School. This building is in such disrepair it is an eye sore and a joke. I cannot understand why we are investing any money into the repair of this "Historic Building". By the time they are finished replacing all the rotted wood, we could have built a new building because that is essentially what it will be. I guess the bigger question is for what purpose are we trying to save this structure. The Declaration of Independence was not signed there last time I check. What will it be used for? Certainly not an "Historic Site", after all the rebuilding it will take to keep it together. I find it very troubling that a Town that plans to ask home owners to pay to get sewer lines run down their streets, instead of a connection fee and annual usage assessment, can waste money on such a money pit.
