After recently touring the new Intermodal center on Lackawanna Avenue in Scranton, I quickly thought of Commissioner Patrick O’Malley and his realistic idea to bring county offices into one central location, and the old Globe Store on Wyoming Avenue is a perfect fit.
Such a move would help in the revitalization of the downtown, therefore making it much easier for folks to conduct county business, it will save tax dollars by eliminating many county rental leases, it has a attached parking garage, with easy and covered access to the inside offices, and it will afford closer access to downtown shopping.
Many conveniences and pluses would be gained by this move. Nothing is perfect, adjustments can be made. I encourage our commissioners to move forward with this initiative.
