An infrastructure project endorsed by the Central New York Regional Economic Development Council would benefit two businesses in the Aurelius industrial park.
The Cayuga County Industrial Development Agency applied for a $284,000 grant to support $1,418,125 project to expand sewer capacity at the complex, which is home to Cayuga Milk Ingredients and Grober Nutrition.
Cayuga Milk Ingredients is a milk processing plant. Farmers send milk to the facility where it’s used to produce milk protein concentrates, milk powder and other products. Grober Nutrition produces milk substitutes for animals.
Tracy Verrier, executive director of the Cayuga Economic Development Agency and one of the county’s regional council representatives, said with the two companies operating in the park they are “very close” to the sewer line’s existing capacity.
