Councilor Tom Cardon represents that area of East Derry and said he would contact the volunteer group and find out the status of the hall.
“I will take some blame for this,” he said.
Councilor Brad Benson’s lumber company was one of several community businesses donating products and services to help restore the hall.
He said it may not look like it now, but there has been a lot of work done.
The exterior is set to be pressure washed and then painted soon, Benson added. The weather this summer offered some setbacks for exterior work to be completed.
“I know the folks have worked very hard,” he said.
Fire Chief George Klauber said the hall is safe.
“We’ve been in there over the last nine months, and it meets all code requirements,” he said. “It is perfectly safe to use.”
