The Hopkinton Town Hall and Public Library remain closed at this time due to an electrical problem that occurred earlier in the day. A short in the power service lines from the utility pole to the Town Hall resulted in a surge of power and eventual loss of power within the building. During this event a 1” heat pipe also burst as a result of the surge that traveled to a ground connecter attached to the pipe as part of the electrical grounding system. This leak was quickly addressed and at this time it does not appear to have caused any water damage.
