Workers broke ground on Remington’s new town hall site about a month ago.

Three weeks ago they poured the concrete slab for the $420,000 municipal building at 105 E. Main St. — a half-acre lot two storefronts west of the existing Town Hall.

Framing of the one-story, 2,200-square-foot building could be done within the next few days.

“We’re coming along pretty smoothly,” Bealeton-based builder Frank Poland said Monday. “The guys are working on the roof.”

After the windows arrive next week, his crew will begin enclosing the building with composite siding and brick, Mr. Poland said.

“The biggest problem was we ran into the foundation there of a home that was raised, I’m told, 10 or 15 years ago,” Mr. Poland said. “That took about three truckloads” to clear the site.

Grading the property also presented some challenges, requiring the removal of 10 to 15 truckloads of dirt, he added.

If all goes according to plan, the project should be completed in 60 to 90 days, Mr. Poland said.

At twice the size of the current Town Hall — a former bank building — at 203 E. Main St., the new structure will house up to six town employees, with three operating a Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles office. The state pays the town to provide that service. 

The new town hall will include:

• A council chamber, which can accommodate up to 36 people, including citizens, the mayor, council and staff.

• A waiting area.

• Town and DMV office space.

• An employee break room.

• Three restrooms and storage.

Remington will cash-fund the project — using proceeds from the sale of the existing Town Hall to help pay for it. For tax purposes, the county values the property at $58,800.

“I’m happy to see it moving forward,” said Councilman Stanley L. Heaney Sr., owner of the nearby Corner Deli at 100 James Madison St. “It’s looking good. It shows the town well.”
