A former juvenile justice center in Cayuga County is one of four sites New York plans to use for housing youth offenders after raising the age of criminal responsibility earlier this year.
The state Office of General Services is seeking bids for a $12 million project at the former Harriet Tubman Residential Center in Sennett, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office. Construction is scheduled to begin this fall and will transform the facility into a limited secure residential center for 25 people.
The center, which will be operated by the state Office of Children and Family Services, will have 85 employees.
