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.
