News Details - Records Storage Agreement Approved
Legislators approved a ten-year lease agreement for underground records storage space at the Seneca Army Depot, at a cost of $720 per month ($8,640 per year). The vote was unanimous, with Legislators Kathy Luz Herrera and Pam Mackesey excused. The sublease with Finger Lakes Technologies Real Estate Holdings, LLC takes effect as of October 1. The agreement, applying to storage of certain permanent original records the County must retain, stems from the need to relocate the Tompkins County Records Center to meet the Legislature’s directive to vacate Old Library building in a timely manner. Nearly all County records have been digitally scanned, saving the County millions of dollars in anticipated cost that would have been needed to build a new records storage building.
