NORWICH – The long-awaited game of dominoes was tipped off last week when lawmakers approved expenditures for the Chenango County Board of Supervisors’ new digs in the 1991 wing of the County Office Building.
The move is the first in a planned string of office switches to space formerly occupied by the Department of Social Services and within the older office building itself. DSS moved across Court Street to renovated and refurbished offices in the former sheriff’s office and jail last year.
Lawmakers agreed to use $10,000 within the board chairman’s budget for new carpeting and furniture and to build a wall. Second floor space will eventually accommodate the supervisors’ board room, board clerk’s office, chairman’s office, county attorney’s offices, and committee room.
