Officials with the Seneca County Industrial Development Agency say no objections have been raised by the state regarding the controversial sale of the former Hillside property.
The Varick parcel will be sold to local businessman Earl Martin for $65,000.
Since the state did not raise any objections to the IDA, the sale can proceed. IDA executive director Sarah Davis told the Finger Lakes Times this week that the move was typical of the process. “This is usual, so we plan to proceed with setting a closing date for the sale,” she explained.
After the sale was initially approved by the IDA in October – the state had 90 days to object. There was nothing officially received by any organized board in Seneca County about the sale.
