This is exactly what the Seneca County Board of Supervisors had in mind.
The first fruits of economic development from Seneca County’s Route 318 Corridor Sewer Improvement Project were suggested at Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors’ Economic Development & Tourism Committee meeting.
The panel voted 5-0 for a change order to Blue Heron Construction, adding alternative bid item No. 10 to the project for an estimated cost of $70,000.
The county initially decided against including Alternate Bid No. 10 in the project because of an inability to obtain necessary property easements. However, by switching the method in which the sewer line on Grange Hall Road would be installed to diagonal boring, a key easement now appears likely.
Rick Wadhams of Wadhams Enterprises, a trucking company in Junius, told the committee the company wants to move its facility on Border City Road in the old Howard’s Express building to a new structure on the north side of Route 318 and Grange Hall Road. Wadhams added there is interest from others in developing property on the south side of Route 318, once the sewer system is operational; he declined to identify those potential developers.
