M'burgh Village Receives Bid for Upgrades at M&S Depot

MIDDLEBURGH - The Village of Middleburgh received one bid last week for upgrades for the historic M&S Depot.

The village, in conjunction with the Middleburgh Historical Society, is looking to build a bathroom, storage closet area, and other improvements at the M&S Depot, located at the corner of Wells and Maple avenues.

The village last week got a bid from Schonecker Construction for $69,848 to do the work at the Depot. 

After reviewing the bid at their meeting last Monday, board members delayed taking any action as members of the Historical Society want to review and discuss it before the village takes any action. The village board is expected to vote on the bid in May.

The cost of the work will be paid for through funds provided for by local benefactor Nick Juried, who also paid for past upgrades.

Trustee Bob Tinker, who has overseen much of the rebirth of the depot since work started about a dozen years ago, said the upcoming changes at the Depot should include period lighting around the property and a new bathroom and storage area which will be a separate building on the Grove Street end of the building adjoining the present deck. Additional work should include the two new parking areas and assorted concrete work for sidewalks, etc. 

The Middleburgh Historical Society is responsible for financing these projects. It is hoped that most of this work will be done this spring and summer. 

Village board members last Monday approved a bid from Schoenecker Construction for replace three sidewalks in the village for $60,900. The village received three bids for that work.
