Ertel also said that if the resolution passes in Rotterdam that the company would make payments in lieu of taxes on the property.
Republican board member Gerard Parisi said that it makes a lot of sense to vote against the rezone because of the property would be taken off of the tax rolls and become tax exempt if used by the federal government. Parisi would also like to hear how the community feels about the rezone.
"At the end of the day its the community's voice that counts," said Parisi.
The town board of Rotterdam will meet on Wednesday, April 28 at 7 p.m.
