The Brookfield Township banquet hall behind the fire station on Route 7 is getting a facelift.

Township trustees approved the first part of the work April 12 when it hired Giglio Inc. of Brookfield to tear down and rebuild with block the east wall of the hall; replace the ceiling tiles and mitigate any mold found in the ceiling; paint the grid that holds up the ceiling tiles; remodel the coat closet; replace emergency lights, baseboard and interior lighting; paint the walls; and affix cork strips to the walls from which people can hang things such as posters, banners and notices, said Trustee Shannon Devitz.

Giglio’s quote was $43,000, the lowest of four submitted, and the money will come from the township’s allotment of American Rescue Plan Act funds from the federal government.

Devitz said she is seeking quotes from companies to clean the ducts in the hall, and that job could be done toward the end of the project.

The work is underway.

Devitz said she also wants to address the floor of the hall and set up a meeting with the Brookfield Township Volunteer Fireman’s Auxiliary to talk about work in the kitchen.
