Infiltration of bats causes Catholic Charities to relocate

by Andrew Henderson

The Broadway Bridge construction project in Fulton has caused traffic delays, detours, and perhaps a few headaches for motorists driving through Fulton.

It has now caused a temporary relocation of one of the most-used non-for-profit agencies in Fulton.

Catholic Charities of Oswego County is temporarily vacating its historic building at 365 W. First St.

The reason? A sudden infiltration of a large colony of bats thought to be caused by the start of the $12 million reconstruction project over the nearby Oswego River.

Catholic Charities has moved its operations from its current location — the only remaining former American Woolen Mills building on West First Street — to a temporary location in the vacant St. Michael’s Church, which is located at the corner of West Third and Beech Streets, just two blocks west.
