Democratic candidates: End Medley Centre agreement
Irondequoit, N.Y. - Several Irondequoit Democratic candidates are calling for an end to the agreement between the town and the Medley Centre's owner.
They're also accusing the current town leaders of not doing enough to pressure Medley owner Scott Congel.
Town supervisor candidate Adam Bellow along with town council candidates Lorie Barnum and Dave Seeley held a news conference Friday.
They're calling for the end of the current payment in lieu of taxes (PILOT) agreement that was enacted in 2009 between the Medley Center and the town of Irondequoit.
Bello says by terminating the agreement, it will send a clear message to Congel that the town will not tolerate the centre's current state.
Congel has been at odds with politicians over tax breaks and a lack of investment in the property.
You can hear from the candidates and reaction from Supervisor Mary Joyce D'Aurizio tonight on 13WHAM News at 5 and 6.
