Scio Mini Mart part of Exxon Mobil reimbursement plan with NYS

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York authorities have reached a $10.75 million settlement with Exxon Mobil to reimburse the state's oil spill fund for cleaning up eight former gas station sites. The fund began paying for remediation of the oldest of the spill locations in 1989. Some of the gas stations were operating as early as the 1930s. The eight sites include Hilltop Service Station in Mahopac, Putnam County; Joe's Country Convenience Store in Campbell Hall, Orange County; Raceway Exxon in Monticello, Sullivan County; and Courtney George Service Station in Albany.
Others are Zanella's Market Hill Service in Amsterdam, Montgomery County; Harry's Service Station in Jordan, Onondaga County; Scio Mini Mart in Scio, Allegany County; and Boller's Auto Sales in West Seneca, Erie County.
