Officials looking at lease agreement for county courts

NORWICH – The years-long search for additional space to accommodate the Chenango County court system has taken another step forward with a proposed resolution to enter a lease agreement with a private local entity.



The Chenango County Agriculture, Buildings and Grounds Committee has put forward a resolution for County Supervisor Lawrence Wilcox to enter a lease agreement with a local private entity, the name of which has yet to be made public. Should decision-makers follow through with a lease agreement, the newly acquired courtroom space will be home of the county’s family, surrogate, and drug courts, as well as court clerks, the court library, and all respective staff.

According to County Attorney Alan Gordon, this is the first major attempt to relocate the Chenango County offices of New York’s Sixth Judicial District since local legislatures were mandated by the New York State Unified Court System to find additional square footage to accommodate for a growing number of county, family and surrogate court cases.
