Resident Questions Relocation of City's Historic Preservation Office

Dear Mayor Jones:

I understand that the Paterson Historic Preservation Commission will be relocating its offices from the S.U.M Building on McBride Avenue to Ellison Street.
I was wondering what the rationale is and what the total cost to the taxpayer will be for this move?  Please ask your finance department to furnish me with a total dollar amount, this should include the cost of Department of Public Works labor and transportation, packing materials, disruption and downtime to pack and unpack, decommissioning and setting up of phone and internet lines.  Cost of preparing the new space.
Who will use the vacated space?

At a time when property taxpayers now have to pay 29% more than last year, is this move really necessary and responsible?
I look forward to hearing from you.
Michael Symonds
Resident and taxpayer
