By Lou Sorendo Compass Federal Credit Union is readying to open its new branch in Fulton, beginning a new chapter for the financial institution that was established in 1966. Construction is expected to be complete by the end of June at the new branch site, located at 208 N. Second St., according to Dan Kapuscinski, marketing administrator for Compass. The new 3,400-square-foot building is at the corner of Shaw and Hubbard streets, near Davis-Standard. Staff will then need to set up shop, and no official opening date has been established yet. However, Kapuscinski said the opening should occur in July. COVID-19 has not impeded the construction project, but staff was separated during the height of the pandemic for several months, which slowed down other processes. Kapuscinski said Hayner Hoyt Construction Company of Syracuse, which is handling construction, is doing an admirable job in adhering to COVID-19 guidelines, such as practicing proper social distancing. “They are doing what they need to do to keep working out there,” he said. This will be the eighth location for Compass. Its main office is located at 131 George St., Oswego, and it also has locations in the Port City at Novelis, 448 county Route
