New plan calls for less expensive Rehoboth City Hall

A new City Hall in Rehoboth Beach is looking smaller and less expensive than initially thought.

The Daily Times of Salisbury reports that cost estimates for the building have decreased from $20 million to $13.5 million.

The new plan calls for a smaller complex, at 36,345-square-feet, that will result in lower renovation and construction costs. The plan emerged from a meeting between architects and City Manager Gregory Ferrese.

All city operations would be located in the new complex.
