Canajoharie To Receive $6M Grant
Canajoharie is known for a few things, one of which is the entire reason the $6 Million dollar grant is being awarded to the town.
Canajoharie, a small town nestled about halfway between Albany and Utica will receive a grant worth six million dollars to demolish a building that is far beyond repair according to the Daily Gazette. That building is the old Beech-Nut factory. A company that once called Canjoharie home left the town for Amsterdam some years ago.
The building as it sits is riddled with asbestos and is an eyesore, for lack of a better term. The town's mayor is elated to know this issue will be resolved.
“This is the best news I’ve heard in ages,” Mayor Francis Avery said Monday. “This really is going to help a lot.” - Daily Gazette.
If all pans out as expected, the demolition process will begin in mid-summer according to the Schenectady based newspaper.
