Public invited to Selbyville Town Hall open house


Selbyville’s new town hall is open for business. The public is being invited to celebrate the new town hall and police department at its new location at 1 W. Church Street.

On Friday, Oct. 4, the Town will host a ribbon-cutting to celebrate the opening of Selbyville’s Town Hall in its new location. The open house will be from 9 to 10:30 a.m., with the ribbon-cutting at 9:30 a.m. The public is being invited to attend to see the new space and enjoy coffee and doughnuts.

After PNC announced that it was closing the bank location at the site in 2017, the Town made an offer on the tall brick building, a spacious upgrade from the former one-story location. (PNC is still operating its on-site ATM for bank customers.)

Now, town hall is in the middle of everything, right on the corner of Main Street, Church Street and Dukes Street.

“It’s a good thing,” said Mayor Clifton Murray. “With the future and the growth, that’s the perfect place.”

The police station and Town offices share the municipal building. All business will be conducted from the new location. All phone, fax and email contacts remain the same. For more information, call (302) 436-8314.

Ever since moving day on Sept. 10, the Town staff said, they have been delighted to enjoy more office and storage space. The town council is accepting suggestions for use of the former town hall location at 68 West Church Street.
