Empire Biofuel’s Chairman To Address Town Board

A large crowd is expected tonight for the Seneca Falls Town Board meeting, as both supporters and opponents of the corn-to-ethanol plant plan to try and sway town board members. Twenty-two people have signed up to speak at the meeting, including Empire Biofuel’s Chairman Ed Primrose. Last month, Empire Biofuels announced it is forming a task force of its partners, engineers and lawyers to see if land at the Former Seneca Army Depot can be transformed to meet their needs. The Seneca Falls site off Auburn Road has not been completely ruled out, but three town board members have announced their opposition to the site. The 80-million dollar plant would bring 35-new jobs to Seneca County. Tonights meeting starts at 7 and will be held in the Community Center’s gymnasium.
