Human trafficking sounds like a terrifying crime and few Central New Yorkers are aware that it’s happening in this area. The League of Women Voters hosted a panel discussion Tuesday night in Syracuse to try to raise awareness.
Central New York’s High Tech entrepreneurs have a new space to “power up” at the Tech Garden. The new “Power Up” room, sponsored by the National Grid, includes workstations, whiteboard walls, and interchangeable murals and banners. Regional Executive Melanie Littlejohn says the space is designed to attract start-ups to develop advancements in green and clean technology.
With the help of National Grid’s Economic Development Program, what used to be the vacant B.G. Sulzle plant in Salina has been transformed into the new headquarters for Empower Federal Credit Union. The 75,000 square-foot facility received more than $282,000 in incentives. C.E.O. John Wakefield says the credit union has already realized huge efficiency gains.
