Insurance won’t cover a large amount of leftover damage from this summer’s flooding in Chapel Hill, members of the Town Council said at a meeting Monday night.
The estimated cost of repairs for the Chapel Hill Town Hall is $679,576 and insurance will pay $267,092.
The town has asked that the general fund and housing fund balances be used to pay the cost of the projects that will exceed the insurance settlement.
During the repair project, the town will improve to the Town Hall to make it more sustainable. The total cost of the energy efficiency and design improvements is $76,000. Insurance will not cover the costs of the sustainable improvements, which as of yet have not been specifically named.
The town also hopes to move the IT server room and reconfigure the customer service area.
