Cayuga County moves quick on office building renovation after wind storm damage

Cayuga County is moving swiftly to address the future of its main office building, especially after a windstorm severely damaged the roof. The Cayuga County Legislature plans a special meeting on February 20 to discuss the fate of the aging, nearly 60-year-old building. This decision follows Legislature Chairwoman Aileen McNabb-Coleman’s recent presentation highlighting the urgent need for roof repairs, evidenced by concerning images of the damaged and worn-out roof.


Temporary measures have been put in place to withstand the winter, but a new roof is an immediate necessity. The Planning and Public Works Committee of the Legislature is expected to provide regular updates. Last year, the county considered a $35 million expansion project for this six-story building, but it remained unresolved.

Chairwoman McNabb-Coleman emphasized the urgency of the situation, indicating upcoming meetings with architects and a detailed presentation at the special meeting. The Legislature is committed to expediting the renovation process, focusing on evaluating options, cost estimates, and initiating action for the essential county facility.
