The Seneca County Industrial Development Agency has declared itself as lead agency for the environmental review of the Seneca Dairy Systems manufacturing facility proposed for Romulus.
Seneca Dairy Systems, which is owned by Earl Martin, has applied to the IDA for a PILOT agreement and exemptions for sales tax on equipment purchases and the mortgage-recording fee. The payment-in-lieu-of-taxes terms are being negotiated.
As part of the application process, Martin’s plan to build a new manufacturing and galvanizing plant to make steel fencing and gates for the dairy industry must go through the State Environmental Quality Review process.
The IDA Board of Directors voted 5-0 Thursday to designate itself as lead agency for that review. Board members Don Trout, Tom Kime and Steve Wadhams were absent.
