Renss. Co. to consolidate departments
TROY -- The Rensselaer County Legislature voted on Monday night in favor of consolidating the Departments of Probation, Youth, and Social Services.
The Legislature approved the option to lease the Flanigan Square building on River Street and consolidate the three departments under one roof. The Office of the Minority said that the departments will occupy the first three floors of Flanigan Square.
"The move will also foster increased coordination and communication between the closely linked departments, whose clients and duties often overlap," said Legislator Edward Manny.
The 20-year lease will begin on January 1, 2014 and will run until the end of 2023, with an option to buy the building in the future.
