The board said it would like to do a feasibility study to figure out if the truck bays would have enough space to accommodate the town’s needs.
Even if the truck bay space appears to be too small for the town’s needs, they could possibly employ creative solutions to try and make the arrangement work, something the village did when it moved its offices, Brace said.
“The village did not build anywhere near the amount of space that was designated for it in that planning study. So you take it and you have to look at it as a rough overview,” she said.
Board members also briefly discussed the possibility of sharing a courtroom facility with a neighboring town such as Marcellus. Board member Nancy Murray said that this option was explored in the past by Supervisor Terri Roney.
The state does not have requirements, only recommendations, for town courtrooms so the town may have some flexibility there, Sennett said.
