The board of directors of the Genesee County Economic Development Center is set to vote on two big projects at its meeting tomorrow.
One of those projects involves Graham Corporation which is seeking over $483,000 in tax abatements to expand its facilities.
It wants to build a new bay on Harvester Avenue to enclose the two manufacturing areas along with a new building on Florence Street for x-ray inspections of welds completed in the fabrication process. The entire project is estimated at $5.5 million. There will be a public hearing set for this project because the proposed incentives exceed $100,000.
The second project addresses Guthrie Heli-Arc’s expansion and relocation plans. The transportation vehicle repair facility is looking for over $77,000 in tax breaks to move from Bergen to a location on Clinton Street Road in Stafford after a 7,200 square foot addition is finished. Its total project cost is about $300,000.
The board is also expected to review two revolving loan fund applications at the meeting. It’s open to the public and starts at 4.
