New Interest In Old Binghamton Senior Center
It appears unlikely Binghamton city council will approve a plan to sell a former downtown senior center to Opportunities for Broome at Wednesday night's meeting.
The agency has said it's willing to pay $75,000 for the building at Pine and Fayette streets so it can set up a training kitchen.
But that proposal may not receive the six votes needed now that Lane Construction has expressed interest in buying the property for $105,000.
City council president Teri Rennia told WNBF News there'll be a vote at Wednesday's session on the OFB plan. But with the prospect that the building could be sold for a higher price, there probably won't be enough support to approve the OFB offer at this point.
Rennia noted the Lane Construction letter of interest is not a binding offer.
The senior center closed 17 months ago because of problems with the building's heating system.
