Cosgrove said he would be working with Milanese during the moratorium to see how the Vanderbeck House could be preserved, possibly by incorporating it into the plans for the future facility.
"I'll have to see what we come up with," Cosgrove said.
Borough officials had previously said they did not believe they could legally place a demolition moratorium on the building, but Milanese had agreed to not fight it in this case, according to Cosgrove.
Milanese could not immediately be reached for comment Wednesday.
Meanwhile, efforts to repair the neighboring historic Naugle House are continuing. The Fair Lawn Council voted during their meeting to apply for a $25,000 matching historic preservation grant from the county which would pay for the preparation of construction documents for the project.
