The interior of the Raymond G. Thorpe Municipal Building will be repainted for the first time since 2007.

The Cortlandville Town Board unanimously approved a potential bid of $15,595 for the project. The contract, set to be awarded to Rivers Painting of CNY, could feature a 10 percent discount if signed by Nov. 1, according to town supervisor Tom Williams.

“We are repainting the whole thing; the bathrooms, courtroom, our side,” he said. “We had three bids. One was fairly high and another one was low.”

Williams said the new paint job seemed overdue. 

“If you walk around and you look at some of the corners and walls they are getting beat up,” he said. “This would be a rehab of all the paint in all the rooms.”

Officials with offices in the building will be able to decide what color scheme they would like to use for their office, Williams noted. 

“The hallways and common areas will be the same as the original color schemes,” he said.
