The property of 150 W. Main St. in Patchogue, which has both the recently moved Carnegie Library and the Sixth District Court, has been subdivided at Monday’s Patchogue Village Board of Trustees meeting at Patchogue Village Hall.
The property now has the Carnegie Library on one parcel, and the court house with the parking lot on the other.
Village attorney Brian Egan said during Monday’s meeting that Suffolk County asked Patchogue Village to subdivide the property, and now that it's divided Patchogue Village mayor Paul Pontieri can ask county legislator Rob Calarco to make a motion to Suffolk County to approve the transfer of the parcel containing the library to Patchogue Village.
Patchogue Village will in turn transfer the property to Patchogue-Medford Library when it is ready, who plan on putting their Young Adult department into the building.
The public hearing for the subdivision was approved by a unanimous vote by the Village Board of Trustees.
