scam, sprague used his kid and grandkid to front the business so he could use his political connections at the county to get the land, all the favored tax breaks and when the breaks and writes off are over, itll be sold, and legislator sprague can put some of that cash in envelopes and pass it out to his fellow elected officials for them hooking him up,,,and then itll be his turn to pivot for them...youll see,,slices of condos in ellicottville, and nobody asked right....

No market for condos here right now, tons of empty condos all over already and you are wrong in it being a scam...

Wings are expensive everywhere now...and their prices are comparable to other places in Eville.. Just about the same prices as Hoagies and the food is wayyyyy better.

Not sure where you are getting your facts. The property was purchased from the Louisville Slugger Company, the county had nothing to do with the sales transaction. It is on the tax rolls and they paid $18,000 in taxes for this year which will go up considerably based on the improvements they made to the property.

Looking at the public records, they paid $750,000 for a piece of property that was vacant for almost 10 years. Guessing they have at least another $750,000 in construction costs, maybe more. So even selling at a break even of $1.5 million there would not be much of a market for the property as it is in a flood plain and very expensive to build residential property to local codes. Plus there is not much of a market for real estate in town over the last few years.

As far as the family goes, I know the Grandson was there everyday working to get the project done. Not sure how it can be construed as a "front".

You may not agree with Mr Sprague's politics, but in this case he took an abandoned factory, converted into a facility that increases property and sales taxes as well as providing construction and long term jobs.

I for one am glad they invested in the local community.
