Shortly after a contract was signed, Freeman Holdings left Plattsburgh's airport without first telling county officials, said representatives from Clinton County, where Plattsburgh is located.Oneida County Executive Picente, desperate to get this contract signed, is in denial.
A contract had been signed, but disagreements arose over whether Clinton County would provide certain services and infrastructure not named in the agreement, the county and company officials said.
. . . Picente said he was aware of what happened in Clinton County, but said safeguards were in place to protect Oneida County's interests in case of disagreements."... already have them or are planning to do it" ??? This sounds exactly like Plattsburgh to me . . . an "understanding" or a "handshake deal" done at side bar . . . waiting to go wrong.
Items Freeman Holdings needed at Plattsburgh already are in place in Rome or will be soon, said Picente, who hopes the agreement is approved.
“We already have them or are planning to do it,” he said. “It's a totally different operation.”
Legislators, please stop behaving like this is Dogpatch County. Get some professional help and protect our interests as taxpayers.
