Bluffton's town hall is undergoing yet another round of renovations to reconfigure offices and add windows and new entrances.
The town will spend about $100,000 for the work on the Theodore D. Washington Municipal Building, some of which is being done in-house.
Two new overhangs, similar to the one installed in the front, will be added to the east and west sides of the building, which once was H.E. McCracken Middle School.
Windows are being added to the front, opening up several offices to sunlight. Other improvements include a fresh coat of paint, cabinets and a new break room.
Next year at a cost of about $45,000, the town plans to tackle the men's bathroom, described as "vile" by town manager Bill Workman.
Since taking over the Bridge Street building in 1992, Bluffton has poured a significant amount of money into it, including $327,000 for a new roof.
Following allegations that the municipal clerk of court's office was robbed at gunpoint last June, the town spent $55,000 to add cameras, bullet-proof glass, fire alarms, a security system and a series of locking doors.
The town rents the building from the Beaufort County School District for $1 a year.
