As many of you in the community know, Carriage House ceased operations last week in order for potential buyers to tour the facility in Dunkrk. Neither potential buyer was impressed noting the following:

The average age of the employees is 47 82% of the employees have an education of a HS Diploma, GED or less.

A review of city finance revealed keeping operations in Dunkirk would result in paying 53% more in taxes than they would in Kentucky

As one potential buyer put it "I just don't see how keeping this plant here is economically feasible, you're showing us a plant in the middle of the ghetto, dilapted buildings and houses,high crime rate, poor housing, deteriorating bridges and roads and you want us to pay a kings ransom compared to what we would pay else where, I just don't see it."

Both buyers agreed that bringing in potential vendors and business associates as customers would be a tough sell and as one put it "an embarrassment" given the current appearance of the city.

Both potential buyers agreed the tax rates and fees make it irrational to keep the facility operaing.

As much as I agree that the business climate in Dunkirk -- and New York State as a whole -- is wretched, the original post is quite obviously a work of fiction.
