GOSHEN - Demolition of the Orange County Government Center is now set to begin next month.

An Ulster County judge cleared the way Monday for the $71 million overhaul and expansion of the Orange County Government Center in Goshen, dismissing a lawsuit alleging the project wasted taxpayer money.

The building has been fenced in as asbestos removal has started.

The building was badly storm-damaged and closed in 2011, impacting the local economy that relied on business the building brought in.

Opponents are appealing the court decision.

An application to hold off demolition was being filed in court Tuesday, but things are moving ahead with the project set to be completed in 2017.
