GREENCASTLE, Pa. — Renovations to upgrade Antrim Township’s municipal building could begin as soon as mid-June with completion by early fall.

At Tuesday’s meeting, township supervisors Fred Young, James Byers, John Alleman and Rick Baer voted to move forward with bidding renovation work on the 34-year-old building.

David Molino of Centura Associates of Chambersburg, Pa., presented a detailed, final look at the drawings for the upgrades to the township building at the worksession prior to Tuesday’s meeting.

The township paid Centura Associates approximately $13,500 to design a layout of the municipal building.

After a final review of the plans, Alleman’s motion was to proceed with bidding the building and bidding the grading and architectural landscaping no later than 30 days after the building.

“My goal is to have them hit the streets no later than mid-April,” Alleman said. “Builders are still looking for work for the summer, but if you wait until June ...”

The township budgeted $800,000 in its 2013 budget for renovations to the building.

There isn’t going to be any square footage added, said Township Administrator Brad Graham.

The only exception are two vestibules that will be added to the front of the building for energy efficiency purposes, he said.

The new design includes additional office space, new handicap-accessible bathrooms, revision of the space formerly used by the district justice and modernization throughout the building, Graham said.

During renovations, township employees will work in some type of modular trailers, Graham said.

In other action, supervisors approved Michael Condo as the township’s roadmaster/parks director.

Condo, 40, will begin his new job on April 4 at a salary of $48,000.

Nine people applied for the township position, Graham said.

The parks director job is a new part to the roadmaster’s title, Graham said.

“Parks have always been a part of the roadmaster, but with the development of the park and the heavier usage, and the desire to develop and encourage more usage, the park committee wanted somebody to focus on the park,” Graham said.

Condo has a bachelor’s degree in behavioral and social sciences from the University of Maryland. He has completed credit hours toward an MBA from Frostburg University.

Condo and his wife, Brooke, live in Greencastle with their children Hayden, 9, and Riley, 4.
