TOWN OF ISLIP INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT AGENCY APPROVES INCENTIVES FOR MOVE TOHAUPPAUGE AND EXPANSION OF MARKETING FIRM LORRAINE GREGORY COMMUNICATIONS

Islip, N.Y. – 9-1-15 – The Islip Industrial Development Agency approved a preliminary inducement resolution that will enable Lorraine Gregory Communications, a full-service, integrated marketing and communications agency now in Farmingdale, to move to Hauppauge and expand its operations. The move and expansion will bring 66 additional jobs to the Town of Islip.

Lorraine Gregory plans to spend $5.26 million to purchase and renovate a 47,090-square-foot industrial building on 2.7 acres at 40 Rabro Drive, in Hauppauge, currently owned by Muller-Martini Corp. Muller Martini, the world’s largest producer of print finishing solutions for commercial and book printers, trade binderies, newspapers and digital book manufacturers, previously announced plans to cease manufacturing printing presses.

As part of its incentive package, which is subject to a public hearing and final IDA approval, Lorraine Gregory, will receive a PILOT program that will allow for gradual annual increases of property taxes for 10 years that will save the company $310,677 on property taxes. The company will also receive sales and use-tax exemptions valued at $16,500 on purchases of materials and new equipment and a mortgage recording tax exemption of $47,250.

“Lorraine Gregory is the latest of many companies that have chosen to continue to invest and expand in the Town of Islip with the help of our IDA,” said Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter, who also serves as IDA chair.

The inducement resolution was authorized at the IDA’s meeting on Aug. 25. A public hearing and a final authorizing resolution are required for approval by the IDA.
Lorraine Gregory’s businesses were previously known as Bi-County Mailing, American Mail Communications, Precision Envelope, Direct Printing Connection, and The CPW Group.

Volunteer Fire Fighters Honored for Water Rescue

Islip, NY – 9/1/15 – Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter and the entire Town Board recently honored volunteer firefighters Michael Laduca, and Jason and Justin Deak, of the West Islip Fire Department, at the August 25th Town Board Meeting, for their efforts to save a family after their boat began taking on water while sailing on the Great South Bay on August 9. Also honored was William Deak, Jason and Justin’s father, who assisted in the rescue. These young men were off-duty when they saw the family floating in the water waiving for help. They pulled their boat closer to the scene and dove in to save the family, beginning with their youngest daughter who was unable to swim.

“Though not on duty, these young men still jumped right into action and put the lives of others ahead of their own,” said Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter. “They are truly heroes and we are proud to have them as members of our community.”

Dog adoption fees are normally $111.00, per dog, which covers the cost of the spay or neuter surgery, vaccines, town dog license and a micro-chip. The shelter currently has about 80 dogs for adoption ranging in breed and size.

Islip Town Encourages Back to School Safety

Islip, N.Y. – 8-18-15 –Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter and the entire Islip Town Board are encouraging residents to practice “Back to School” safety. With the 2015-2016 school year beginning soon, many children will be along the roadside early in the mornings, either walking to school or waiting for the school bus. Please be cautious of this and always abide by school-zone speed limits. Residents are encouraged to reduce speed and be prepared to brake in residential areas, near schools and by child care facilities.

“It is imperative that individuals remain alert and cautious while driving to ensure the safety and well-being of all pedestrians, particularly the youth of our town as they head back to school,” said Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter. “This is only done if all drivers observe all the rules of the road especially the rules that apply to cell phone distractions. Please remember, no texting and driving….it’s the law and it can make the difference between life and death,” Supervisor Carpenter remarked.
