Railyards Derail State of City Speech

Railyard Woes Derail

State-Of-City Speech

Paul Agoglia, Oneonta, urges Mayor Gary Herzig to install fast-charge stations for electric cars and to work with local farmers for solar and wind energy for the D&H  railyards, rather than gas, as 125 people showed up for the public comment period on the railyards’ GEIS following the Mayor Gary Herzig’s State of the City address this evening at Foothills Performing Arts Center, all but a few calling for green energy in the proposed project.  The outpouring of comment derailed plans to announce $2 million in grants for downtown upgrades, the first flowering of the city’s DRI program; the list was left on a counter in the lobby of Foothills’ black-box theater.  (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
