Round Top Town Offices Moving Into Fire Station

Round Top will get new municipal offices after the town council approved a plan Monday to renovate the town’s former fire station for that purpose.

“We own the land and we own the building,” Mayor Barry Bone said, explaining the rationale for the $85,000 project.

Bone said the town can borrow the money at four percent simple interest on a 25 year note and save about $50 a month over current costs.
