GOSHEN — The Goshen Board of Works approved the language for two types of agreements with downtown property owners who have underground vaults.

The board on Monday approved the form of two agreements between the city and property owners who still have a vault beneath their building. In a bid to prevent the collapse of city sidewalks above any more old storage vaults – as happened in July 2012, sending a man down an 8-foot drop – the city hopes to push building owners to either fill in their vault or agree to keep it in good condition.
