2019 Budget Address Scheduled for Sept. 12 at DICK's Sporting Goods Distribution Center in Conklin

 

County Executive Garnar to Present 2019 Budget Address at New DICK’s Sporting Goods Conklin Distribution Center

2019 Budget Address Scheduled for September 12

(CONKLIN, NY) It is with great excitement that Broome County Executive Jason Garnar announced today that his 2019 Budget Address will be given Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at 6PM at Dick’s Sporting Goods Distribution Center in Conklin.

The new distribution center is located at 1314 Conklin Rd., Conklin.

As with his 2018 State of the County address at Animal Adventure Park in the Town of Colesville, County Executive Garnar is taking the event into the community, to the residents of Broome County, rather than presenting it at the Broome County Office Building.

“I am excited to unveil the solid budget I have proposed for Broome County for next year. What better place to present my 2019 budget address than at the new DICK’s Sporting Goods distribution center in Conklin. Since the founding of the company 70 years ago, DICK’s Sporting Goods’ commitment to Broome County is strong. From the hundreds of jobs created at the new Conklin distribution center to the PGA Champions Tour event, the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open, I cannot thank the family and the company enough for believing in Broome County and I want to highlight the economic boost they’ve brought here and focus on the importance of workforce development in my 2019 budget address.”

The DICK’s Sporting Goods Distribution Center in Conklin celebrated its grand opening in January of this year. The state of the art facility at Broome Corporate Parkway in Conklin is 650,000 square feet. The distribution center currently employs 250 workers, a number that’s expected to double to 500 in the next five years with the expansion of a new e-commerce fulfillment center.

 

The Broome County Legislature and Department Heads have been personally invited to the Sept. 12 budget address. The event is open to the public.
