Rockland County Employees Move into Building A Offices

NEW CITY, NY – Rockland County Executive Ed Day welcomed 42 County employees who moved Monday from the Sain building into new offices in the Dr. Robert L. Yeager Health Center in Pomona.

"We know that the Sain building was old, out of date, in bad shape and uncomfortable for everyone," he told the employees as he greeted them in the new offices. "We are as happy as you are that we have made good on our promise to move you to a much better location."

Employees from the Department of Personnel and the Youth Bureau settled into spacious and newly renovated offices on the 7th floor of the former Summit Park nursing home in Building A on the Pomona campus.

The new offices were designed with modern amenities that will enable employees to do their jobs more efficiently and more comfortably.

"This move will help lead Rockland County government into the future," the County Executive told staff members. "It is also a sign of how much we value you, our Rockland County workforce."

The Department of Personnel and the Youth Bureau joined members of the Department of Economic Growth and Tourism, who moved into Building A over the summer.

The Office of Consumer Protection and the Payroll Department will move next. The Finance Department will be the last to move.

The County Executive thanked staff members who planned the move, including Director of Facilities Robert Gruffi, Assistant Director of MIS Frank Calise, Purchasing Director Paul Brennan, Deputy County Executive Guillermo Rosa, Personnel Commissioner Lori Gruebel, Youth Bureau Assistant Director Marianne McCarney-Haesche and many others.

By the middle of December, the Sain building will be empty.

Day hopes the New City building will be sold to a developer who has offered to pay $4.51 million for the property on New Hempstead Road.

The developer wants to knock down the building and replace it with a senior housing development.

"Hopefully, it will be demolished as it should have been years ago," Day said.
