Bids have gone out for the design phase of the new airport terminal at Griffiss International Airport in Rome. Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente says that the hopes are that the new terminal, along with the 1,500 jobs being created from the new QUAD-C Building at SUNYIT and other expected nanotechnology jobs to follow, will be enough to lure a commercial airline to fly out of Oneida County. Bids will be accepted over the next few months with the county then going out to bid for actual construction. Picente added that if all goes well, a commercial airline could set up shop at Griffiss sometime late next year.
Residents of the Carthage Central School District are being asked what should be done about the former Great Bend Elementary School. The building currently houses administrative offices for the district, although some have been moved to other buildings. District officials stated that the building has become the most expensive building in the district to maintain & has become economically inefficient to run that building. Any renovations could not be funded with state aid, due to not enough students being in the building for it to qualify. A public forum to discuss what should be done will be held by the school district from 6 to 8 p.m. on March 12th at the building with self-guided tours beginning at 5:30 p.m.
