Broome Receives Offer For Former DMV Building
Broome County has received an offer to purchase the Binghamton building that had been the site of a DMV office for more than a decade.
The office in the city’s First Ward closed in mid-January. The DMV operation was relocated to the downtown bus station on Chenango Street.
The old building is at 181 Clinton Street.
A property listing with Pyramid Brokerage Company in Binghamton features an asking price of $196,000.
Tax records indicate the county paid $110,000 for the former bank branch office in March 2000.
According to the real estate listing, the building has 5400 square feet of space.
County officials had estimated moving the DMV office could result in annual savings of almost $20,000.
Pyramid Brokerage president Maureen Wilson said the county had been considering an offer for the property. She said there had been “some serious interest” in the building since it went on the market.
