Page Trucking in Brutus is planning to rebuild and expand after enduring a massive fire in December, which required the presence of 16 fire departments.
In a Cayuga County Department of Planning and Economic Development meeting July 19 Page Trucking’s site plan for the 2758 Trombley Road property detailing the expansion, including a new service bay garage and a new office building was recommended for approval without change.
In December, Weedsport Fire Department Safety Officer John Clark told The Citizen the large garage — filled with oil, gasoline and other chemicals — that caught fire was a total loss. The garage was unoccupied at the time and there were no reported injuries. Cayuga County property records indicate the full-market value of the site is $776,500.
The application for the rebuild, submitted by Keith Titus Corp., affiliated with the Titus family-owned trucking business, described the scope of the project.
“To demolish a portion of the existing facility, and to redevelop the current site with a new repair / fabrication facility, along with a new office building,” the application states. “The adjacent properties will be purchased to provide expansion of the existing parking area along with necessary utilities.”
