Renovations began this week on the Edgartown town hall, closing part of the town hall parking lot and one of the entrances to the building.

Edgartown procurement officer Jen O’Hanlon said that the repairs are expected to last until January. The work includes putting a new roof on the building, as well as painting and other small repairs.

In early October, selectmen awarded a $540,000 bid for the renovations to the Paul J. Rogan Company Inc. of Braintree, which had been the sole bidder. The project, which will use Community Preservation Act funds, was approved by voters at town meeting.

Part of the town hall parking lot off South Summer street has been closed, as well as the side entrance to town hall. Visitors are asked to use the front entrance on Main street during the renovation project.
