Town office move could be affected

By Bill Toscano

 

The renewal of interest in the town purchasing the Whitehall Armory has the potential to delay – or even derail – the planned move of the Whitehall town offices from the New York State Canal Corp. building to the Skenesborough Volunteer Fire Company building.Just as it appeared the town and village were taking the final steps to allow the town to make the move, Supervisor Richard “Geezer” Gordon found there was new interest in the vacant building, which has potential to host town, and even village offices. The state will sell the town the entire site for $1.

“There’s a lot of potential there. We need to look at it,” said Gordon, who accompanied about 15 people on a tour of the building Friday, Jan. 7. Those visiting included School Superintendent James F. Watson and businessman Richard Corsetti, who have separate, but possibly complementary, ideas for using the building.
