Board member Hurley Cavacas, Jr., who serves on the Building Committee, said there might be a buyer for the property.MORE IN This Just InFire crews responded to an alarm activation at the Rutland Mental Health offices at around 9:15 a.m. Full StoryRichard Courcelle sent in this photo of a bear he saw while having his coffee this morning.
