County Moves Forward on Public Safety Complex

BALLSTON SPA – The Saratoga County Board of Supervisors will vote next week in favor of moving forward on construction of a new public safety complex near the existing Sheriff’s Office and county jail.

Supervisors agreed this week that the proposed $32 million project on County Farm Road meets the standards of being an “unlisted action” under the state Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA).

The county is acting as lead agency on the project and also will issue a formal “negative declaration,” which indicates it will not have adverse impacts on the environment, according to SEQRA rules. Construction is expected to start this spring.

As first proposed more than 10 years ago, the new complex will consolidate the administrative operations of Sheriff Michael Zurlo’s department and multiple county agencies involved with public safety. The existing county jail will not be affected.
