ALBANY They say you can’t beat city hall. But it can be shut down by plumbing problems.
Albany City Hall is set to reopen today after being closed Monday when a flood of sewage 2 feet deep damaged the downtown building’s furnace.
City officials say the sewer backup occurred in a basement furnace room, leaving the building without heat. Another issue arose when an old valve on a city water main broke while workers were trying to fix City Hall’s plumbing and heating problem.
Officials say City Hall will open for normal business starting at 8 a.m. today.
