On Monday the Binghamton City Council would hold a work session involving the request for legislation regarding the St. Mary's Recreation Center.

The request involves Mayor Jared Kraham entering into a contract for the purchase of the Rec Center to turn it into the City of Binghamton Youth Rec Center.

The City of Binghamton would receive a Congressional Award of one million dollars to establish a recreation center, that money will be used in the purchase of St. Mary's.

City Council members say that this could be great for the city since it is an already-developed building and they have unanimously approved to expedite the request to the upcoming business meeting on Wednesday.
