Town Offices Moving To The Town Hall

Alford Town Hall

Alford Town Hall

Beginning Thursday, September 11th, the Alford Town Hall will be closed to public access until the expansion of the school house is complete. The town offices will be temporarily relocated to the town hall while the school house is under construction, and the town hall will only be open during normal office hours. The duration of the construction project is unknown at this time.

On Tuesday, September 9th, the wireless hot spot at the town hall will be reprogrammed. At that time, the existing wireless network will be password-protected and will be encrypted for town office use only. A secondary guest network will be created as the new free wireless hot spot for residential use from the parking lot. The guest network will also be password-protected, which will be emailed to residents and will be available at the town offices. More details will be released on Tuesday.
