NORWICH – After planning for more than a decade, Chenango County officials began moving government offices last week to free up space for several departments that have been asking for more.
The Department of Social Services’ move across Court Street to the vacant former sheriff’s office and jail last year marked the beginning of the shifts. On Vacant space in the former DSS wing was occupied by offices and conference rooms of the county chairman, attorney, clerk of the board, and supervisors.
Supervisors who sit on the Agriculture, Buildings and Grounds Committee made their way last Tuesday to a new meeting room on the second third floor of the COB’s 1991 wing. The supervisors’ boardroom, located just across the hall, is void of furniture and fittings presently, but Chenango County Clerk of the Board RC Woodford said lawmakers should plan on attending next month’s meeting of the board there.
