Hearing set on Power Pallet expansion

TOWN OF AMSTERDAM -- The Planning Board on Wednesday will host a public hearing on an expansion project at Power Pallet on Route 30, then consider approving the site plan.

The hearing will start at 6:50 p.m. Wednesday at the town hall, 283 Manny's Corners Road.

Town Attorney Chuck Schwartz said Code Enforcement Officer Tom DiCaprio cited the company for building an addition without a permit.

"It's not normal, but these type of things do happen," Schwartz said. "They've subsequently submitted everything needed, including engineering reports for the small addition. At the end of the day, if they can verify everything will be built according to code, then we're good."

Once site plan approval is obtained, the permit can be issued, Schwartz said.

Wednesday's hearing will be the second for such a project. Recorder's legal notices indicate the first was held in November.

"We're just dotting our I's and crossing our T's, and making sure everyone has their say," Schwartz said.

When contacted at the company Monday afternoon, Power Pallet proprietor Gary Donadio said he was too busy to speak to a Recorder reporter.

"I have no comment on anything," he said.

Upon petitioning the Montgomery County Board of Supervisors in October to forgive the balance of a Small Cities Community Development Block Grant, Donadio briefly told it about the company's $1.2 million project. He said it would create jobs and expand its recycling capabilities.

DiCaprio did not return multiple messages left at the town office in past weeks which sought comment for this story.
