:thinking: ...The Seneca County Industrial Development Agency is going ahead with the sale and bid process for the 7,500 acre Seneca Army Depot site, despite the push to have the county take ownership of the land.

The on-going debate about who should own, preserve and operate the historic Seneca Army Depot hasn't let up.

Tuesday night, the Seneca County Board of Supervisors was scheduled to vote on a resolution to take over the depot, but instead voted on and passed an amended resolution that allows the IDA bid process to sell the land continue, but it must allow the boards input.

"This amendment allows for this board to be a part of that process which the original one didn't and it also does state that we are going to try to look for the preservation and protection of the white deer," said Cindy Lorenzetti, Seneca County board supervisor.

Many do not think Seneca County Depot's rare white deer population and wildlife will be saved if the land is sold to a private developer.

"God bless America's wildlife, it is the gift that stirs the senses and sense of wonder. Save them to see them. Seneca County, Finger Lakes region and New York State, the world is watching," said Diane Potter of Palmyra.

Four board members voted down the resolution saying the bid process has not and will not include the county, its concerned citizens or unique wildlife.

"Obviously, this board wasn't in support of taking over the depot. I struggle trying to understand that. I don't know what the fear is, I had no hidden agenda. Just trying to plan for the best use of the depot going forward and at this point in time there is no plan on the table," said Steve Churchill, Seneca County board supervisor.

The IDA is accepting bids from potential buyers until February 29 saying it's not about selling to the highest bidder, but what's best for everyone in Seneca County.

Maybe (probably most likely) there is serious environmental contamination on the property. If that is the case, who would be responsible for it once it is sold? Maybe it is a hot potato that nobody wants to end up holding.
