UTICA – For the next year, Oneida County Board of Legislators meetings will be held in a new spot due to asbestos abatement in the Oneida County Office Building.

As of Monday, the offices for Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente, the county attorney and the Board of Legislators have been relocated from the tenth floor to the ninth floor as part of an ongoing asbestos abatement project, according to Picente’s office. The offices are expected to be on the ninth floor for about a year while the tenth floor is abated for asbestos and renovated.

During that time, the monthly Board of Legislators meetings will be held in the fifth floor ceremonial courtroom at the Oneida County Courthouse, which is located at 200 Elizabeth St. in Utica. Picente’s office says board committee meetings and caucuses will be held in the board’s temporary offices on the ninth floor of the County Office Building.

Media events that are typically held in the board’s meeting chambers will instead be held in Picente’s temporary conference room on the ninth floor.

The $18 million asbestos abatement project began at the County Office Building in 2008, and it’s expected to be completed by 2021, according to Picente’s office. The seventh, ninth and tenth floors are the only ones that are left to be worked on.
