City Hall Back Open

Mayor Primeau is happy to inform the residents and staff of the City of Cohoes that City Hall and City Court offices located at 97 Mohawk Street will reopen on Thursday, March 5, 2015 after a brief voluntary shutdown of the building due to the possibility of airborne contaminants after a major water main break that left the lower level of City Hall in disarray.

Mayor Primeau opted to take steps to determine if City Hall was a safe environment for staff and residents to conduct daily business in.  The city hired C.T. Male Associates to conduct environmental testing throughout City Hall and the Police Department.  After several days of air quality testing, findings concluded negative results on any airborne contaminants.

“I would like to thank the constituents and staff of the City for their cooperation and patience during this time.  Normal operations will resume on Thursday, and apologize for any delay in business productivity the shutdown may have caused.  Being proactive in regards to the health and safety of all who enter City Hall was the ultimate priority and receiving a clean report was pleasing to hear,” states Mayor Primeau.
