Lawmakers tell Chamber reps that Cuomo will sign incinerator bill

Although puzzled by how long it’s taking, all three state legislators representing Seneca County are confident that Gov. Andrew Cuomo will sign the Finger Lakes Community Preservation Act of 2019.

The bill would prohibit a trash-burning incinerator from being built on the former Seneca Army Depot in the town of Romulus.

Speaking at Thursday’s Seneca County Chamber of Commerce Legislative Luncheon at Ventosa Vineyards, State Sen. Pam Helming, R-54 of Canandaigua and Assemblymen Brian Kolb, R-131 of Canandaigua, and Phil Palmesano, R-132 of Corning, spoke on a variety of state issues affecting the county.

“There was almost universal opposition to a trash-burning incinerator in Romulus from business owners and others. This was a bipartisan bill that got it right. Businesses and environmental activists were in agreement,” Helming said.
