At a press conference this morning, Joseph Winters announced the acquisition of the Transfer Station previously owned by James Galante.
Although few details were disclosed at the presser, such as the purchase price of the facility or the details regarding the partnership agreement with the city (a memo of understanding is still pending), Winter’s purchase officially closes the book on the Galante empire in the city.
From earlier today, here’s video footage of the Q&A section of the presser.
I’m certain there will be more questions regarding the city’s role in the partnership as well as concerns among residents in the neighborhood as we move forward (i.e., I’m in the process of going through my archives and re-post the Common Council video footage of the creation of the Solid Waste Authority).
