The New York State Police may be looking for a new location for an Endwell station if the agency isn't willing to pay to remain at its current site.

The station has been in a building owned by the town of Union for about 25 years. The site is just east of the town's offices on East Main Street.

Town supervisor Richard Materese said "they've been living rent-free in Endwell all these years."

The town advised the state police commander in a letter Monday that the agency would have to vacate the building in 60 days unless a new lease agreement was reached.

Deputy town attorney Rosemarie Pope wrote: "By my calculations, the last date of the lease would be April 18, 2022."

Materese said the town had been advised by state police that it had to make a formal notification so the existing lease could be renegotiated.

The supervisor said the town has been talking with state police representatives about the being compensated for use of the space.

Materese said "we're not trying to get anything exorbitant" from the state. The town has traditionally paid utility costs for the space used by the state police in exchange for having the law enforcement presence in Endwell.

There has been discussion of the possibility of moving the town of Union court to the Endwell building if the state police don't remain at the site. The court now is located in Johnson City.

A state police representative said the agency was having "on-going lease negotiations with the town of Union."
