Morelle calls for Medley investigation
Irondequoit, N.Y. -- State Assembly Majority Leader Joe Morelle is asking for an investigation into Medley Centres eligibility as a designated Empire Zone (EZ).
Morelle sent a letter to Empire State Development Corporation President Kenneth Adams saying Medley Centres developer, Scott Congel, has not met the PILOT agreement paying the town, East Irondequoit Central School District and Monroe County -- therefore, he should no longer receive tax credits from the state for the project.
Morelle said Medley Centres owner, Bersin Properties LLC, has been receiving millions of dollars in tax credits for years through the now-defunct EZ program.
