The Skaneateles Village Board of Trustees is going to consider the future of the old fire station on Fennell Street, and will hold an operations meeting on Monday, Jan. 9, at 4:30 p.m. at the Village Office to discuss it.
The meeting is open to the public.
The board this morning released the following statement:
“The Village Board believes it is time to address the future use of the old fire station on Fennell Street. After preliminary discussion, the Board is considering the following plan:
1) Renovate the old fire station to house the Village Office and Police Department.
2/) Demolish the existing Wooden police building in back and create more public parking.
3/) Sell the current Village Office on Genesee Street and use the proceeds to pay these costs.
At this time, the Village Board needs to engage an advisor to conceptually develop such plan for public consideration.”
The Skaneateles Press will post updates on the story as it unfolds.
