Council to discuss new City Hall purchase

A York City Council committee meeting to discuss the possible purchase of a new property for York’s City Hall has been scheduled for October 5 at 6 p.m. in council chambers.

The property being considered at 101 S. George St would be purchased from Sovereign Bank for $2.7 million to consolidate the city’s two offices at 50 W. King St. and One Marketway West on York’s square. The existing City Hall would be used exclusively for the York City Police Department if the new building were purchased.

The 101 S. George St. property includes about 53,000 square feet of office space for the city and about 155 parking spaces. As part of the deal, Sovereign Bank would lease back about
10,000 square feet and maintain a bank branch on the first floor. The
bank would also lease 33 parking spaces.

Committee chairman Henry Nixon invited the public to attend the meeting and share their thoughts on the purchase.
