At its meeting tonight, the Ontario County Board of Supervisors passed a resolution to approve the award of a bid for $203,269 to Montemorano Brothers Inc. for preparatory earthwork services for the Finger Lakes Community College Viticulture Center project. The resolution also authorized County Administrator John Garvey to execute a contract with the company based out of Clyde, Wayne County.
The center — which will be the new home for the college's viticulture and wine technology program — will be on the campus of the Cornell Agricultural and Food Technology Park in Geneva, where the two-year program is currently housed.
Also at the meeting, the board approved a resolution to declare its intent to serve as the lead agency for an environmental review of the sale of the Ontario County Health Facility, the county's 98-bed skilled nursing facility in Hopewell. In August, the board accepted a bid of $2 million for the facility from the Centers for Specialty Care Group LLC.
The resolution also scheduled a public hearing for the following meeting on Oct. 24. The hearing will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Ontario County Courthouse, Board of Supervisors Sessions Room, 27 N. Main St., Canandaigua.
Thomas Harvey, director of the county planning department, said the environmental review is required under the State Environmental Quality Review Act.
