Lewis County is accepting bids for an engineering study of a bowling alley. The county entered a contract to buy Lewis Lanes for $1 million with plans of converting it into offices. That purchase is dependent on an appraisal and an engineering study to determine whether the building fits the county's needs. Late last year, the Board of Legislators voted to buy the building, then tried to back out of the deal, which led to a lawsuit by the bowling alley's owners and the county agreed to the purchase for a second time.
Senator Joe Griffo announced that the state has awarded $600,000 to Griffiss International Airport to cover a portion of Northeast UAS Airspace Integration Research Alliance's start-up operating costs. The Federal Aviation Administration recently selected Griffiss International Airport as one of six national sites for drone aircraft development. The airport has teamed with NUAIR, which is an alliance of 40 private, academic andmilitary institutions, to lead research and testing to determine how drone aircraft can be integrated into the national airspace. The funding comes from a 2013-14 state budget allocation designated to strengthen and protect federal installations, such as in Rome, and prevent them from being closed or realigned by the federal government. The alliance has already raised more than $700,000 in private donations and in-kind services. It's anticipated the initiative will create 468 jobs and generate $10 million in tax revenue, with a $145 million total impact on the state.
