BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Officials in a Vermont town are reviewing the use of two highway garages that will be empty after the public works department moves to a new facility.

The Bennington Select Board has given town staff approval to review proposals for use of the Depot Street and Orchard Road garages.

Officials say either a nearby elementary school or a fire department may find use for the Orchard Road garage.

A public art space has been proposed at the Depot Street garage in the past. A nearby redevelopment project in the works could garner interest in the site as well.

Select Board Chairman Tom Jacobs tells the Bennington Banner (https://bit.ly/2qjRBbU ) there is no hurry, but he wants to make sure the town to get a return on its investment.
