Apollo Borough offices find temporary home

The Apollo Borough offices will temporarily move to the former state liquor store site at 206 Warren Ave.

No date for the move has been set, but the borough will soon have to vacate the offices rented in the former Apollo Elementary School building.

The lease expires at the end of this year and the owner of the building wants to expand and needs additional space, said Dr. John Kautz, president of Apollo Council.

The owner of the former state store still needs to complete repairs before the borough moves in, he said.

The borough offices will move in as soon as possible, maybe as early as within two weeks, Dr. Kautz added.

Thursday’s council meeting was held at the Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall at Owens Grove.

Borough officials said they will begin renegotiating with owners of the former United Church of Christ building for a permanent headquarters after not accepting an earlier offer.

Dr. Kautz, who is also a member of the congregation, said that discussions to transfer ownership of the church to the borough are ongoing.

After 127 years, the church closed with a final worship service on Aug. 25.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
