Legislature Authorizes Biggs Building Sale

Tuesday, May 18, 2010
The Legislature, without dissent (Legislator Carol Chock was excused), authorized the County Administrator to sell the Biggs Building, currently occupied by the Health Department, to Cayuga Medical Center. The sale includes the Biggs Building and nine acres surrounding it. The medical center will pay the County $1,059,000 and will take ownership of the building August 1.

The Biggs Building sale is part of the plan to relocate the Health Department to a more efficient facility on Brown Road in Lansing, with sale proceeds used to support part of the renovation cost. The sale will not affect a 26-acre wooded parcel or a small residential-type structure adjacent to the Biggs Building, which remain owned by the County.

Before the final approval vote, Legislators also formally declared the Biggs Building surplus and determined that the action would have no negative environmental impact.
