Demolition crews have started the process of tearing down a former Endwell school building.

Workers using heavy equipment Thursday morning began removing the structure which had housed Christ the King School on Davis Avenue.

An adjacent building that had been a convent was demolished several days ago.

The school was constructed in 1962. It last was used for classes in the mid-1970s. The building later was utilized for the corporate office of United Methodist Homes. It had not been used since it sustained heavy damage as a result of flooding in June 2006.

Broome County Legislator Jason Shaw said he expects the demolition of the former school building will be completed in a few days. He said crews probably will finish all work on the site by the end of the month.

The demolition project will cost local taxpayers about $290,000.

The county is to transfer ownership of the site to the Town of Union. Plans are moving forward to develop a community garden on the property.
