The news of the Oneida Indian Nation's plan to build a premium outlet mall at Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona is ruffling the feathers of some officials.

Seneca County Board of Supervisors Chairman Bob Hayssen says the planned shopping center could hurt Waterloo Premium Outlets, which is a big source of sales tax revenue for the county. He says not only could the development pull shoppers from Waterloo, tax revenue generated at the Turning Stone's outlets would not help Oneida County taxpayers.
