The Adirondack Meat Co. hopes to be operational by late summer. Plans to construct the $1.4 million meat processing facility at the Ticonderoga industrial park were finalized when Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced a $300,000 grant Dec. 19 as part of the state’s Regional Economic Development Council initiative.
continued Karen Stehlin, the director of the North Country Small Business Development Center, played a part in helping the company secure funding.
“I want to congratulate you on being selected as a priority project for the North Country Regional Economic Development Council and receiving the grant funding from Empire State Development and Ag and Markets for your meat processing facility,” she told Ward. “Your commitment to Ticonderoga and your ability to bring people together for accomplishing meaningful goals is amazing. I always enjoy supporting true entrepreneurs that benefit the local community. You receiving the awards from the ESD and Ag & Markets is most deserving and a credit to your business skills. I know that you will be successful.”
