Cayuga County Office Building, budget, subjects of upcoming meetings

Cayuga County legislators will meet next week to discuss the future of the county’s office building at 160 Genesee St. in Auburn and the county’s 2018 budget.

This summer, legislators had some discussion about renovating the existing office building, though asbestos concerns have led to considering erecting a new building altogether. Initial cost estimates from a July meeting indicated a renovation could cost about $11 million, and a new building could cost between $25 and $26 million.

Legislature Chairman Keith Batman said the Legislature will gather for a committee of the whole on Nov. 16 to discuss all county buildings, and Public Works Committee Chair Terry Baxter will lead the discussion.
