Despite the rain and clouds on the Monday after, there’s no doom and gloom from Auburn officials after being snubbed in Governor Cuomo’s $10 Million DRI competition.
Cortland took the Central NY contest, but Cayuga Strategic Solutions Executive Director Tracy Verrier tells Finger Lakes News Radio the Auburn projects were also submitted for Consolidated Funding Application grants. She says there’s bonuses and drawbacks to each.
Verrier has joined others who say the Governor won’t walk away from the jobs and economic impact of the projects in Auburn’s bid.
The winners of the CFA funding will be announced later this year.
