SHERBURNE – The Village of Sherburne has operated its electric department out of the same building for 100 years, but after making offers to purchase a 68-acre parcel of land with the idea of creating a business park, the building probably won’t see 100 more.
The village has submitted purchase offers for the property with a purchase price of $185,000 for the 68-acre site located on Classic Street. “We’ve been trying to upgrade our electric building,” Acee said. “We bought the site for the electric department.”
The current electric department building housed the village’s first generator. The village celebrated 100 years of providing municipal electricity last summer.
