These people at the OD are potato stupid and actually wrote about a nonexistent Nono to nowhere company supposedly talking to "someone" supposedly about to "close the deal" just like they have 3 times in the last year alone.
Funny they always print this phony hype and once again nothing comes out of it. Even if it does there's nothing for the area to get they don't get taxes, they don't get taxes from the employees. Ooo! BIG score!! What's the next big grant coming to the Gaetanos or the friends of the Oneida fraud Democrats?

How many decades does it take the blue state losers and progressives to realize that corporate welfare doesn't bring anything. This newspaper has to be put down for enabling the charade. No matter what that involves the OD really damaged the area with all their "facts" over the years.

MARCY —

A payment-in-lieu-of-taxes agreement for the site being marketed to computer chip manufacturers is in the final stages of approval, even though an occupant for the parcel has yet to be announced, only nebulously hinted at for the 50th time in order to justify the latest state pork for the county and Suny pork dependent losers who can't.

The wholly incompetent and gullible Oneida County Board of Legislators will vote on the PILOT at its regular meeting of the halfwits today, and the agreement already has been approved by the four other deathtaxing jurisdictions for the site — the town of Marcy, the Whitesboro Central School District, the Maynard Fire Department and the Dunham Public Library.

Meanwhile, parallel negotiations have been ongoing between an unverified, often teased, nonexistent unnamed potential occupant and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers over wetland permitting.

Local officials have been silent each time for 14 years each time they dangle the carrot for the moron voters and taxpayers on who the potential tenant might be, and when any possible announcement might be made.

Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente said whatever the future holds in terms of tenants, it’s important to get the PILOT in place.

“It’s the ultimate preparation for the site,” he said.“It covers everything. We continue to work on the infrastructure, but it’s also having the financial details. It enhances the chances of landing a developer or a company.”

The 49-year PILOT would allocate 73 percent of the PILOT payment revenue to pay for debt service on the site preparation, science and math education programs and job training, and improvements to the Oneida County Sewer District. The remaining 27 percent would be split among the jurisdictions to squander as they do every other dime they suck from taxpayers.

Like most mentally ill county board Democrats, Frank Tallarino of Rome said he wants the efforts to net a tenant to succeed, but it’s hard not to be skeptical after so many years of waiting.

“I am hoping for the jobs, to tax out of existence” he said.“I hope there’s plenty of them to ticket for shit too! I hope it gets our cronies houses and "camps" built and "money into the community" ;), but I am getting to the point of: when am I getting a cut of this Nano to nowhere Kabuki show?”

It’s not clear whether the entity that met with the Army Corps is a private company or a separate developer that would build and then market to semiconductor manufacturers, and the hece proven fucking unprofessional morons like Donna Donovan and the wholly clueless and easily impressed Elizabeth Cooper of course print the bullshit once again without verifying ANY of it - only like the 5th time the OD has fed that one to Utica! In a better world misinformation media that promotes the propaganda would be shot in a firing squad.

So far, about $25 million in state and local dollars has been spent on infrastructure improvements and enhancements not counting the HUNDREDS of millions "awarded" to the friends and family prior. The total price tag to make it shovel ready is expected to be about $39 million.

Next door, at SUNYIT, the $125 million state Center for Computer Chip Commercialization, or Quad-C,AKA "classroom" is under construction and enriching the Friends and family.

It's long been teased that the Quad-C would help attract an lobotomized occupant for the Marcy site and also draw other nanotechnology companies to the area. In 14 years they finally made a huge pronouncement and said a warehouse tenant had moved in. The Quad-C is set to open in late 2014 but offers absolutely zero by way of new private investment.

Remember this rinky dink project is what they've been claiming was the "big big hush hush secret negotiations" that they all made the media rounds teasing.

Only in Utica does the news report 100% unsubstantiated unverified total bullshit. Why? Because the news clowns are dependent an the loser politicians and also support the friends & family system. They won't print anything "negative" about their friends anymore than Donna Donovan would print about her son Andrew Donovan's Hit & Run personal injury DWI. That newspaper is a fraud. it's biggest content any longer is "iSpy".

Two points. Would it not be better for all if the OD quit writing stories about way mighr happen? Second, this development smells of a huge New York State price tab, which means our tax dollars. As this post says at the end, until we know the extent of private investment, there is no story.

Would it not be best for all if the OD quit printing stories that "might happen"? This project cannot be judged until the extent of private investment is known. If it is a major NYS initiative it will be one more example of our tax dollars driving the deal. That translates to a bad deal.

Dont forget the UP TO $45 BILLION (That's With A B) Investment.

We've got a better chance of Donna Donovan's son going a week without booze than this rubbish. How many more years is the EDGE going to milk this with all those expensive trips abroad playing the "come build in Marcy" game??

Will all of you Topix morons who think every cloud has a lead lining please pack your crap up and move the hell out of the MV. Maybe there is some distant colony full of similarly afflicted inbred mouth breathers who think progress is a dirty word. All of your bitching and moaning is growing tiresome. Not to mention your rampant stupidity, which just makes me sad. Don't forget to bring your tin foil hats with you. Jackasses.

Nice. Now we know people from the EDGE read Topix.

We get promised so much shit in this area and nothing ever happens with it. This will come, that will come, then suddenly you never hear anything about it any more. What do you expect, stupid.
