SUFFERN – In the near future, Avon Properties will be listing its research and development commercial building for sale, Suffern Mayor Michael Curley said.
“The Avon of yesterday is not the Avon of today,” he said, noting they employ only 136 people at the Suffern facility and some of them work remotely.
The mayor also pointed out that “the ‘great’ tax deal that Avon received in 2003 will expire soon. “The village only receives approximately $166,000 per year instead of the approximately $640,000 we should receive,” Curley said.
“The Village of Suffern controls the zoning on this property and as a village, we will decide what best fits our needs. As I always say, ‘Suffern First’.”
