On Friday, the Town held the Beam Raising for the new Public Safety Complex. Southborough Wicked Local was there.

SWL posted highlights from the ceremony:

A small — but cheerful — group of town officials, construction workers and residents gathered at the complex Friday morning to watch the installation of a ceremonial beam. Many had signed the white beam during the town’s annual Heritage Day on Monday.

“Obviously, there is a long way to go before we are complete,” said Selectman Brian Shea. “It is very nice to see after all the work done by so many people.” . . .

Paulhus thanked the town’s taxpayers for supporting the project.

“I remember when that vote went through and everybody applauded and I’ll distinctly remember that when I am in retirement somewhere,” he said.

Town Administrator Mark Purple said site work took about five months, including moving the St. Mark’s Golf Course clubhouse.

“Now that they are starting to go vertical, it’s moving very quickly,” he said.
