Major makeover of the century-old town hall of Papillion

The historic Papillion Town Hall is undergoing a major makeover, and the town gave KETV NewsWatch 7 a look inside the century-old building. Renovations have been underway since December 2020 and now, in early April, all city departments will resume work under one roof. Outside the Papillion Town Hall building, it looks like nothing has changed. But inside it’s a different story – including new carpets and walls. From new ADA-compliant bathrooms to more office space for various departments, the old courthouse of Sarpy County has some notable new improvements. And while Papillion Town Hall has added many new features, if you look around you’ll notice there are historic elements they’ve preserved, from the balustrade to the tiled floors. “I think everyone is excited to be back under one roof, we’ve all been spread out over the past year,” said Trenton Albers, communications manager for the town of Papillion. As of December 2020 , Albers said different departments are working in three other locations so the building can undergo renovations, cooling, new energy-efficient lighting,” Albers said.This week, the departments of administration, building, communications and human resources are already back in the building.”The building is probably the most relevant to the public because there’s a lot of foot traffic coming out of it,” Albers said.With these new renovations, the city hopes that workers will now be able to stay in the building for years to come.

As of December 2020, Albers said different departments have been working in three other locations so the building can undergo renovations.

“New energy-efficient heating and cooling system, new energy-efficient lighting,” Albers said.

This week, the administration, building, communications and human resources departments are already back in the building.

“The building is probably the most relevant to the public because there’s a lot of foot traffic coming for it,” Albers said.
