Much Ado About Nothing

After close to four years of searching for a new site for the Department of Social Services, spending in the process $1.5 million to buy an abandoned school building and an undetermined amount on studies, analyses, RFPs, and PowerPoint presentations, the Columbia County Board of Supervisors has decided to buy 25 Railroad Avenue after all--the building that was too old, too small, too inefficient, too problematic--provided it can pass a Phase II Environmental Assessment, so that DSS can stay where it's been all along. W. T. Eckert has the story in today's Register-Star: "Supes to buy 25 RR Ave, if it passes muster."       

On the subject of DSS, there's also a letter to the editor in today's Register-Star from Lee Jamison, who's running for Stuyvesant supervisor.
