A deal has been finalized for the Northeastern Connecticut Council of Governments to buy its Killingly headquarters from the town.

KILLINGLY — Earlier this month, pretty much particularly a few a long time soon after Killingly citizens authorized the sale of a slice of city-owned assets to the Northeastern Connecticut Council of Governments, the deal was finalized.

Town Supervisor Mary Calorio claimed NECCOG on Nov. 3 formally shipped a full payment of $289,000 to the town in trade for possession of 3.82 acres at 125 Putnam Pike in Dayville where by the regional council’s 16-member headquarters, along with its animal control facility and the Northeastern Transit District functions, sit.

“The transaction has formally closed, with all the documents submitted,” Calorio reported. “The town, as a member of NECCOG gains from this sale, as does the community as a whole.”

NECCOG has been the sole occupant of the home because 1992, when a 25-12 months, no-cost lease was signed with the town. When the lease expired in 2017, NECCOG and Killingly officials worked out a sale’s offer accredited by residents at an Oct 2017 city meeting.
