A committee that is looking at plans for new Homer Village offices is considering at least two sites for the building project.
Back in May, the Village Board announced the formation of the building committee. The committee was instructed to consider plans that included tearing down the Paul Hill Community Building and community basketball courts behind the existing village offices and replacing them with a new village office and community center.
The Village Board formed the building committee after rejecting a proposal to move back to the Homer Town Hall where the village offices had been located for many years. The village relocated amid air quality and health concerns in the town hall.
Trustee Paul Gower who serves on the building committee says the group is focusing on sites the village owns as possible building locations. Gower says property adjoining the Village DPW garage on Fulton Street is an option.
The village is considering spending over $200 thousand on a new building and currently has $270 thousand available for a capital project.
Gower is looking to get estimates on the cost of a new building but didn’t know how big the new building would be.
The committee meets again on October 13th at 6 P.M. at the village offices.
