Only commenters oppose Seneca IDA aid to Fayette solar project

FAYETTE — The people who commented at a public hearing opposed a financial assistance package that the Seneca County Industrial Development Agency is offering a solar project.

Both comments cited the lack of job creation in opposing the aid to Delaware River Solar of New York City.

Wednesday’s hearing was conducted virtually.

Marie Smithgall expressed concern about long-term jobs being created by the solar project. She said the project may create temporary construction jobs, which she supports, and suggested the developer agree to hire a percentage of workers from Seneca County or counties bordering the county.
