Marble residents asked permission to sell old Town Hall

Marble folks have a couple of ballot questions in the April 2 municipal election.

The first will ask whether Marble should sell its old Town Hall building, because municipal offices and town council meetings will be moved to the restored Marble bank building.

Town clerk Karen Mulhall said the old green and white house used for Town Hall doesn’t have a foundation or running water. The Marble bank building restoration project is still about $7,000 short of completion.

“The floors need to be refinished,” Mulhall said.

A second ballot question will ask residents whether they want to do away with term limits.

In Marble’s mayoral race, incumbent Bob Leone faces challenger Mike Evans.

On the town council, four seats are up for re-election, but there are only two candidates: incumbent Wayne Brown and candidate Robert Pettijohn.

Mulhall said the town council has the option of appointing the mayoral race loser to the council.

Mulhall said Marble has about 100 registered voters. The election will be held at the Firehouse. The Marble Town Council meets once a month, and members are not paid.
