ALBANY, N.Y. – The energy company that hopes to bring seven new heating units to its processing facilities announce it withdrew its application for a new building.
Now the company hopes to revamp one of its existing buildings and put the four steam boilers and three heaters in the location.
Last week, Albany County Executive Dan McCoy ordered a moratorium on that expansion, ordering the county health department and sheriff's office to determine the consequences if there were a large scale accident.
Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan says she expected Global Partners to pull its application but explains more review is needed.
"It's really important we coordinate our efforts with the DEC and with the county before we issue any building permits that would be required to be issued for the installation of those boilers," said Sheehan.
The DEC said this does not affect their ongoing review of Global Partner's permit application.
