A member of the Seneca County Industrial Development Agency has resigned.
Valerie Bassett, who served on the board since 2016- resigned unexpectedly on February 4.
IDA Executive Director Sarah Davis said Bassett cited a desire to have more time to enjoy her retirement and take care of her family, according to the Finger Lakes Times.
The owner of the Big M in Ovid, Sue Ciriencione, would have filled that open seat if the Board of Supervisors approved it- but that was ultimately tabled.
The supervisors and IDA are trying to work together on a solution.
