Economic Development Push Creates Job Retention & Expansion

Islip, NY – More than $5 million will be invested, nearly 20 new jobs created and 40 jobs retained, thanks to the unanimous approval of two separate Industrial Development Agency [IDA] inducement resolutions by Islip Town Board members today that will make way for one company to relocate and expand its business to Islip Town, while another, already doing business in Islip, plans to expand. These actions by the Islip Town Board are just the latest measures they have taken to attract and keep businesses in Islip.
