Some very good news among the funding announced this week from Albany was $400,000 for new construction at the Watertown Industrial Center on Starbuck Avenue. It will house Jain Irrigation, one of those quiet but successful firms that iis now headquartered on Water Street.
Jain is an Indian company that took over the former Chapin Watermatics.
Whe WIC consists of former NY Air Brake Buildings converted into a center for newer and smaller businesses. It was the first project I worked on when first elected mayor as reuse of the old plant was just as important as working to save the existing Air Brake which was done as well.
