Big Changes Ahead for Endwell State Police and Union Town Court
Construction crews are renovating an Endwell building to accommodate a state police station and the town of Union court operations.
A project to reconfigure and expand the town-owned structure on East Main Street is nearing completion.
The state police facility is expected to be relocated from its current space in the building to the lower level.
Town supervisor Robert Mack said that move probably will occur in January or early February.
When the state police operations are relocated, remodeling work will begin for the town court. The court now operates out of leased space in the Johnson City village justice building.
Mack said he now expects court operations could start in the Endwell building next May. Moving the court back to Endwell will save the town about $50,000 a year in rent payments it has been making to Johnson City.
The cost of the work at the Endwell building is expected to be around $2 million. The project includes floodproofing of that structure and the neighboring town office building.
On Friday, workers at the site used a crane to remove old heating and air conditioning equipment before placing new units on the roof.
