Debate over Fate of Downtown Building
Plattsburgh, NY – There's a debate in the city of Plattsburgh over who should get a building in the heart of the city. The Federal Building sits in the center of downtown next to the historic Strand Theater, which is undergoing renovation. The non-profit North Country Cultural Center for the Arts wants to obtain the building, but the current mayor wants the Federal Building to be placed on the tax rolls. Last night the city council passed a resolution supporting the Cultural Center. WAMC's North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley has more.
