ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) - Officials in St. Johnsbury are hoping to stop the leaks in the roof of the vacant armory while they make long-term plans for the 16,000-square-foot building in the northeastern Vermont community.

Assistant Town Manager Joe Kasprzak says they would like to preserve the inside of the building so good decisions can be made about its future.

The armory building, which closed in 2009, had housed the St. Johnsbury Recreation Department.

The St. Johnsbury History and Heritage Center had been ready to use the Main Street building, but backed away from the idea because of the work that would have been needed, estimated to cost $2.6 million.

The Caledonian Record (https://bit.ly/1NacHxi) reports the town is hoping to find a partner with good ideas for the property.
