Indeed, City Hall is believed to have its own resident ghost. Noises have been heard late at night in the vicinity of the Council Chambers. Doors creaking and closing. That sort of thing.
One cleaning person actually saw the ghost, described as a slightly built, older gentleman. A psychic medium and author of ghost books, Craig McManus, dropped by to inspect the premises, and verified that yes, City Hall definitely has a freed spirit.
It is believed to be former treasurer, Anthony Imbesi. When I started working at City Hall 41 years ago, Mr. Imbesi was treasurer. He was a warm, kindly person who really loved his job. If it is Mr. Imbesi, City Hall couldn’t have a nicer ghost.
