Authority Approves Sale of
May 20, 2003
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ALBANY—New York Power Authority trustees Tuesday
approved the sale of a former transmission line maintenance facility
to the Village of Baldwinsville for $300,000.
The Village intends to use the building
containing garage facilities and a variety of office and conference
rooms as a new site for its Department of Public Works. The site
occupies approximately 12.63 acres.
The one-story, steel and concrete structure was
built in 1961 and was used to house staff and material to help
maintain a portion of the high-voltage transmission line that links
the Niagara Power Project in Lewiston to other parts of the state. A
recent decision to centralize transmission line maintenance at the
Power Authority’s Clark Energy Center in Marcy made the
Baldwinsville facility surplus.
An appraisal of the property in preparation for
sale determined the fair market value for the land and improvements
to be $300,000.
