Read in the paper that the Meat Processing Plant plan for Frankfort is in jeopardy. Not a huge fan of pursuing businesses that have/had plans to go to a neighboring town, but if they don't want it there is no harm plus it would still be in the area.

Utica should gently pursue the plant. There are many options as to where they could go. Broad street would be good because its right next to 5S or Whitesboro street because its on the railroad, etc. I hope city leaders take a closer look at it.

It's the closest Utica will ever come to a chip plant.

Good one. We need a slaughterhouse in Utica. Screw the chip plant, they had their chance.

I think the reason they were looking at Frankfort was because of the low cost of electricity there. Refrigeration equipment takes a large amount of power making electrical costs a major factor in locating a plant.

You might want to take another look at your statement. Butchers make a very comfortable living and are very few and far between. This clearly would be an opportunity for many to learn a trade and get a very nice wage in return.

Is the Frankfort Town Board not interested in Economic Developement? The city of Utica is. Mohawk Valley EDGE also should be communicating with Full Circle Packing to get them to invest in Onieda County. This plant would be monitored by the Department of Agriculture and we could require that the plant be ISO certified ensuring that it is clean and safe. A meat processing plant in our area would reduce the energy needed to bring product to this area as well as reducing the cost to local beef producers who must ship their cattle out of the county. It would also fit right into our plan to increase the capacity of manufacturers downstate who are in need of shared services, a plan that Cuomo is promoting for our area. The new New York. We are open for business!

Power is cheaper than -Ilion- in NC and NJ many states. That is no reason to move there and the savings gets eaten up in the New York taxes we studied this in business admin.

Get a grip, you goofs. We need high tech in Utica, not to step back into the 1950s.

Bring in companies that pay a reasonable wage that will sustain families and encourage growth in our economy.

McDonalds, Olive Garden and a meat packing plant will keep us poor.

"High tech?" If you think that makes you "high tech", I think you mean "...FORWARD into the 1950s".

This is a no brainer for the local sleaze lazy politicians~

Just call the place "Nano Burgers" and Tada! See? Coumo will show up and start cutting billboard-sized checks to start spending millions on lining pockets and all the voters and upstate dodobirds will think EDGE came thru! Win win situation!
