Legislators Wrangle Over Costco Project

Legislators Wrangle Over Costco Project

There are new doubts about plans for a Costco at the CityGate site in Rochester.

Costco needs land currently occupied by the Children's Detention Center on Westfall Road.

During a morning meeting of the County Legislature, Republicans tabled a bond authorization for a new center -- arguing it can't be approved without a capital budget that Democrats voted again to block.

Democrats are holding up approval of the capital budget to demand an independent review of the Local Development Corporation scandal.
