The former Don Owens auto dealership building on Main St. in Endwell has become a safety concern for the Town of Union.

With it's close proximity to the sidewalk and traffic, the town is working on tearing it down as soon as possible.

It is currently being inspected for asbestos and from there the town will seek bids for demolition.

Supervisor Rose Sotak says that although it is mainly a safety issue, it will also benefit the community by making the property more desirable for redevelopment.
