In this May 18, 1977 photo, City of Dunkirk Mayor Gilbert Snyder signs a document to turn over 27 acres of city airport property to the Chautauqua County Industrial Development Agency. The property is for the new Ferranti-Packard electric transformer plant. Watching the signing at City Hall are City Attorney Daniel Polowy (seated) and standing, left to right: Chester Tarnowski and Anthony DiRusso, both county legislators from Dunkirk, and David Doino, president of Progress Park, a non-profit industrial development agency in Dunkirk.
