ARKPORT, NY – Hornellsville town planning board head Joe Dick officially informed the board Tuesday night that his group had met with Simmons Rockwell officials about a week ago and a green light was given to build a new Nissan dealership directly across the road (Route 66) from their current location.
The vehicles that currently occupy that location will be relocated to the south end or backside of the dealership after it has been prepped and paved. Also in the plans are four more employees at the Ford dealership and anywhere from 12 to 16 employees at the new Nissan dealership. “It will be around 13,000 sq ft,” said Dick, “and it will have a full showroom and service bay.”
According to Dick, Nissan has been pressured them heavily to break ground by July 1st, but until the new codes officer is in place things are on a temporary hold. Dick also said nothing is really new with the hospital, and they still need a certificate of need from the state health department before things get rolling. He did also mention that 60% of the property designated for the medical arts building has been leased.
In other news the town finally hired a new codes officer to replace Shawn Grasby. Appointed to the position was Robert Mooney of Rexville at an annual salary of $17,650 plus one way mileage.
