Few questions over hotel tax breaks for proposed Best Western
By Joe Moskowitz
Nine years ago, an attempt by Margaretville businessman Peter Molnar to get tax breaks in order to construct a 62-unit hotel on Route 28 between Margaretville and Arkville drew dozens of signatures on a petition against his request.
Angry speakers stood up at an Industrial Development Agency (IDA) public hearing to question why he should be extended such a privilege.
But on Tuesday, just 10 people showed up to a similar meeting, only a few questions were asked and the entire hearing lasted just 18 minutes.
