The town of Dublin has a preliminary cost estimate of $6,000 to move the town clerk’s office downstairs.

The Select Board spoke with Town Clerk/Tax Collector Jeannine Dunne and Building Inspector/Code Enforcement Officer Michael Borden during its Monday meeting, where Borden outlined a potential plan to move Dunne’s office downstairs.

“I think it would be a pretty easy transition,” said Borden, in a phone interview Tuesday. “It’s progressive thinking. [Moving the office downstairs] would serve the public easier.”

The Select Board has not made a decision to move the office at this time. The concept was brought up during a conversation about how to more efficiently heat and cool the current office.

Borden said the proposed plan would create a 200-square-foot office space downstairs in the corner of meeting space by constructing an 18- and 11-foot wall. Borden said the new office would be twice the space of Dunne’s current office and would have two doors and service windows.

Moving the office downstairs would also add ADA compliance.
