Statement Re: Bersin Lawsuit

Supervisor Bello's statement regarding the Bersin Properties lawsuit filed against COMIDA, the Town of Irondequoit and the East Irondequoit Central School District:

"Five years ago, Mr. Congel signed an agreement with taxpayers - in exchange for significant tax breaks, he would invest in a multi-million dollar development at the former Irondequoit Mall. Clearly that investment has not been made, and terminating the PILOT agreement is an important step towards ensuring that taxpayers do not continue to subsidize a failed project."
