WDT: Watertown Trust continues to work on Mercy’s closure

       One of the major priorities for the past couple of years has been to work behind the scenes to deal with the pending problem of what to do with Mercy. I'd be the first to say its a vexing issue and answers are elusive for the still privately owned building due to go dark within six weeks.
      Recent discussions I had with LG Duffy placed this issue to the fore as the state was a player in why this situation came about and must be part of the solution, as do county and city governments.

Start by contacting the owners and offering them a dollar for it, on behalf of the city.

The property would make a great place to put up a large parking garage.

How about a county jail for short stays?

Looks like a candidate for one of those upstate casinos... or an event center. Put two layers of parking garage, then a convention center on top.

Really the is place would make a great place to put the county jail over flow. Strap them in a bed, IV for food, and keep them in a drug induced coma. Hell that's how I would want to serve 60 days. Might even be the way to go with all of the prisons too. Just put them out till their time is done. Hell I almost think you could charge S/S for their stay. Call it disability.

You mean you are not walking around in a drug induced coma most of the time Ray?
