Ceremony celebrates newly renovated public safety building

After months of renovations, the updated and improved Windham Public Safety Building was introduced to the public at a ribbon-cutting ceremony July 13. Among the speakers were Windham Town Manager Barry Tibbetts and Town Council Chairperson Jarrod Maxfield. Jonathan Smith from Great Falls Construction, the company that completed the project, also said a few words. They, along with the other people who spoke at the ceremony, agreed that there was a wonderful spirit of cooperation between the Great Falls staff and Windham’s public safety personnel during the entire project. Working together, they have created a facility that will better serve the residents of Windham for years to come.
