Nick Feltis, chairman of the Pleasant Grove Town Board, stands near the current Town Hall building, built in 1914 after a tornado damaged the original brick Town Hall. “The current building has outlived its usefulness,” Feltis said. “The building we have now has no running water and no bathrooms.” The Town Board is moving forward with plans to build a new Town Hall, which will have heat, running water, two bathrooms, space for 60 to 65 people and possibly air conditioning.
Two bidders are still in the running to build a new Town Hall in Pleasant Grove Township. KBS (Kreofsky Building Supplies) of Rochester and Chatfield Lumber Company, Inc. of Eyota have submitted bids to build a new 32-foot by 64-foot structure just west of the current 23.4-foot by 40-foot town hall, built 105 years ago. Nick Feltis, chairman of the Town Board, said representatives from KBS discussed their plans for the new building at the Town Board's most recent meeting on Monday evening, March 4. Board members will discuss the project further at the Town Board's annual meeting, set to be held at the current Town Hall tonight (Tuesday, March 12) beginning at 8:15 p.m. Pleasant Grove Township residents will vote on the budget for the new Town Hall at a meeting at the current hall on Monday, April 1 beginning at 7:30 p.m...
