Flanagan Research Center requests more county funding

NORWICH Ė More county funding is on the way to cover cost overruns at the James S. Flanagan History Research Center on 43 Rexford St. in Norwich.

Representatives from the Chenango County Historical Society and the county historianís office say about $13,800 more is needed to build a handicap accessible ramp between the research center and the adjacent CCHS Museum. The money would also be used to purchase storage racks and furnishings for a library room, the historianís office and a space for the public.

The ramp and concrete work would fulfill the requirements to obtain a certificate of occupancy, enabling Historian Patricia Evans to begin the enormous task of moving the countyís archives from the basement of the museum in the former ward school to the new new centerís first floor.
