continued Carol Calabrese of the IDA also said they were seeking funding through the North Country Economic Development Council for the company as a priority project.
“There is a scoring for the regional council that can add up for funding,” Calabrese said. “We have looked at the council's regional plan and this is identified as a significant area for farmers and those who are looking to get locally fed and processed meats. It is a project that is also identified as needed by Cornell Cooperative Extension. With all this, we feel confident that we can go to the regional council and ask for this to be a priority project.”
