The Boulder Town Hall will reopen for business later this month, having been closed for repair work since the April 2010 earthquake.
The hall sustained significant structural damage when the 5.0 magnitude quake hit the city and cost an estimated $1.7 million to repair, according to Kalgoorlie-Boulder mayor Ron Yuryevich.
The first business on the calendar at the newly repaired hall will be a City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder council meeting on July 23 in the hall’s council chambers.
The reopening will be celebrated the following weekend with music, dancing and entertainment.
On July 28, the hall will host a 1930s and ’40s-themed swing night with the Oz Big Band and Six Appeal swing dancers.
The night will mark the beginning of the Spotlight Concert Series for the year, to be alternated between the Boulder and Kalgoorlie town halls.
