The County of Chautauqua Industrial Development Agency (CCIDA) is pleased to announce the purchase of the ConAgra building at 26 Talcott Street, Dunkirk, NY.
Late last fall, the CCIDA issued a $2M Bond that was purchased by Chautauqua County, giving us the opportunity to control the future use of the facility, thus allowing us to insure that manufacturing jobs are returned to this Dunkirk facility.
CCIDA is in active negotiations with manufacturers that will create jobs in Dunkirk and utilize the full potential of the building.
The CCIDA would like to thank County Executive Vince Horrigan, who fully supported the purchase, along with the County Legislature that unanimously approved the Bond purchase, and City of Dunkirk, Mayor, Anthony Dolce. Without their support, the CCIDA would not have had the opportunity to be proactive in purchasing this facility.
We also appreciate the support from Senator Catharine Young, Assemblyman Andrew Goodell, Congressman Tom Reed, Senator Charles Schumer, and Senator Kristen Gillibrand.
