Broome Closes Shelter

Broome County Executive Pat Brennan announced today that the shelter that was housing special needs evacuees since September 7, 2011 closed on Wednesday, December 14th.

The shelter, which was originally operated by the Red Cross, started at Binghamton University’s Event Center on September 7th, and moved to Saint Mary’s Recreation Center on Hawley Street. Evacuees were relocated to Broome Developmental Center on September 20th and that shelter has been operated by Broome County since September 20th. As of Tuesday, the county was sheltering eight individuals, all of whom returned to their home or were placed with relatives or another shelter.
