GOSHEN - Orange County officials approved a $74 million bond to renovate the county's government center in Goshen after three years of sitting vacant.

The building on Main Street has been closed since 2011 after it suffered major damage during Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee. Businesses in the area say they've seen their amount of customers drop in that same time.

Businesses are hoping for an economic boost with the building reopening, which is expected to be by 2016.

Demolition on one of the three old buildings will begin in mid-August. The county will solicit construction bids next year.
