    During the meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 15,
Hallings, who is currently the FLEDC vice president, announced he has accepted an offer for a position with Lyons National Bank in Penn Yan.   Hallings, who has been with FLEDC for the last four years, explained that his decision to leave was tough and that he enjoyed working with everyone else on the council.  “I have to let you all know this was a difficult decision and it has been a pleasure working with all of you,” he said.
    Yates County Finance Committee Chair Tim Dennis praised Hallings for the work he has done with FLEDC.  “You have done a great job and we are going to miss you,” he told Hallings.  
    FLEDC Chief Executive Officer Steve Griffin said the council will be looking for someone to take Hallings’ place over the next few weeks.  Griffin also mentioned he is not sure if the new vice president will be the person who gets hired or someone who is promoted from within the organization.
