The Facilities Division is responsible for the physical maintenance, capital development, and daily custodial services for all schools and municipal facilities of the Town of Hanover. Our daily goal is to maintain the Town’s facilities assets in the best condition attainable while providing the safest and most environmentally friendly conditions possible for the students and employees of Hanover and the visiting public.
