The Cayuga County Office Building will be closed on January 11 and 12 due to repairs needed after sustaining roof damage from high winds on the evening of January 9. A crane required for the repair work limits access to the building, prompting the closure for safety.
During this closure, all county departments within the building will operate remotely. The repair work is expected to be completed by Friday, January 12. For residents needing services from the Cayuga County Department of Social Services, such as Temporary Assistance, SNAP, or Medicaid, they can reach out to 315-255-6272 for assistance.
The Cayuga County legislative committees’ meetings have been rescheduled due to the closure. The Government Operations and Judicial Public Safety Committees will convene on Tuesday, January 16, while the Health and Human Services and Ways and Means Committees will meet on January 17 and 18, respectively, in the Office Building Chambers.
The county expresses gratitude to its employees and Buildings and Grounds Director Gary Duckett for their response and flexibility during this period.
As of 5 a.m. there were still 2,800 NYSEG customers without power in Cayuga County.
