Utica Council Approves Sale Of Bossert Site

Gino Geruntino, WIBX

Utica, NY (WIBX) – The Utica Common Council voted last night to move forward with the sale of the old Bossert Manufacturing Site on Oswego Street.

The group gave the go-ahead for the city to enter into a land contract with James Ranalli of United Auto Supply.

Mayor Rob Palmieri is hopeful the deal will move ahead and there will be development on the property soon.

According the the D-E-C, investigations found a number of hazardous materials were improperly disposed of during Bossert Manufacturing’s 89-year history.

The list of hazardous substances included PCBs, mercury and petroleum products.

The 6.9 acre property was placed on the state’s Superfund List in 1986,

it was taken off that list in 2008, after more than $10-million was spent remediating the property.

The city has owned the property since 1987.
