Town Hall is getting an upgrade as a crew is replacing all of the windows on the main floor of the building.
The current windows are 94 years old and don’t have screens and are less energy efficient.
The total cost of the project is about $83,000, with that money coming from the Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation ($40,000), the Municipal Economic Enhancement Program (MEEP, $35,000) and the Town of Shaunavon ($8,000).
Because the new windows are funded by the Sask Heritage Foundation they must look identical to the current windows and be made from the same material in order to maintain the historical look of the building.
The new windows are still made of wood but are metal clad to prevent deterioration of the wood.
The town also recently completed an upgrade to the ramp at the back of the Town Office, with funding for that project coming through MEEP as well.
