Three Projects on Agenda at GCEDC Board Meeting for March 30th
The Genesee County Economic Development Center (GCEDC) will take action on three projects at the Board’s meeting on March 30, 2017.
Coach Tony's, a specialty sauce food processor is seeking to build a new 5,000-sq. ft. building on 3 acres within Apple Tree Acres. The company has been operating out of a leased facility in the town of Bergen. Coach Tony’s is requesting that the GCEDC board accept an application for sales tax, mortgage tax and property tax abatements.
The board also will consider approving a final resolution for tax exemptions in the city and town of Batavia for O-AT-KA. In 2016, O-AT-KA made a capital investment of approximately $20.9 million for a 200,000 sq. ft. warehouse expansion. The capital cost increased an additional $850,000 and as a result the sales tax increased an additional $68,000.
Finally, the Board will consider a final resolution for approval of a GAIN Loan Fund for Jr. Maple which owns and operates a maple syrup production farm in Batavia, New York. The farm started with 800 taps, and has grown to 4,800 taps in just three years. The company is seeking a GAIN! Loan fund of $30,000 to purchase a more energy efficient boiling system to enhance its operations.
The GCEDC Board meeting is open to the public and will take place in the Innovation Zone board room on 99 Medtech Dr. on Thursday, March 30th starting at 4p.m.
