Main Parking Lot at Hicks Memorial Municipal Center & Library (12/27/11)
The main parking lot at the Hicks Memorial Municipal Center & Library is now open for the public and staff. Temporary paving has occurred and light poles have been installed. The concrete that was poured for the walkways have not been sealed and can not be sealed until the weather is above 60 degrees so that means no salt can be spread on the walks or it will destroy them. The Town crew will do its best to keep them clear and put a little sand on them when they get iced up. When we do get snow, please watch your step and walk carefully.
Update on Main Municipal Parking Lot for Hicks Memorial Municipal Center and Library (12/19/11)
The main Municipal Parking Lot (behind Town Hall) will be open to the public and Town staff as of Tuesday, 12/20. There will be cones in some parking spaces that will not be available due to the installation of light poles. Thanks for all your patience during this construction time.

Town Hall & Library Construction Update (10/27/11)
The Town of Tolland is currently embarking on three construction projects at the Town Hall and Library. Town staff is working closely with the design professionals and contractors to assure that first and foremost safety is the number one priority around the construction work. Therefore, from time to time entrances to certain parts of the building will be restricted. Every effort will be made to complete this essential work as quickly as possible with the least inconvenience to residents.
PARKING LOT: Until the completion of the installation of the geothermal wells, the parking lot will continue to be reduced. This activity will continue for several more weeks.
CHANGE IN LIBRARY HOURS AND ACCESS: The current skylight removal and replacement is scheduled for next week. Therefore, the Library hours will be reduced to allow for the safe removal of the skylight. There may be one or two days during this period that the main entrance to the Library will be closed and the side entrance will be used. Town staff will have signage in place to direct Library patrons to the proper entrance.
Library Hours from October 31st to November 9th:
October 31st - 1:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m.
