WDT:Poultry inspection company buys Renzi warehouse, to create up to 30 jobs

       Some good economic news as the last day of 2015, as a Canadian firm is buying the old Renzi warehouses on Bradley Street for a poultry business. That as Renzi continues to grow at its other location on Rail Drive.

      On a sour note, I ready Mike Lundy is suing COR over its decision to forego a housing project in West Carthage in favor of the Mercy site project. You can't sue everytime things don't go your way and the Mercy project is more regionally transformational, which is the criteria for getting the State assistance.

Sue, sue, sue, that's all idiots do nowadays. Shut down the law schools for about 20 yrs. and thin out the herd. And then all the "millennials" might have to get real jobs, and may even get their hands dirty.

Sounds like Watertown will soon have a slaughterhouse brought in through the back door. Seems like the city has some loopholes in the planning approval process that you could drive a poultry truck or a cattle truck through.

The guy would sound like less of a jerk if he didn't sue for $30 million. It sounds like he has a legitimate beef in that they backed out of the deal without a valid reason. "A better opportunity with more free Wright stuff came along", is not a valid reason to break the deal. But it is ironic that the corporate welfare hogs ate him, after he himself gorged more than a few times from the hog trough.

$200,000 from the JCIDA and a whole 30 jobs? We've seen how well those loans work out.

On the other habd, I don't blame Lundy for suing COR. You'd be doing the same if they end up backing out of Mercy. Time will tell...

Isn't Lundy the same gentleman who promised to provide another NSIL Bldg.? Isn't he the same one that wanted a tax-break for a car wash? Can't wait to see the package for those 30 jobs...

Wow! Reading about all the special privileges that COR gets from our state, it sounds like Lundy would have better luck accusing Obama or Clinton of something than to go after these guys.

And do we all know why with detail why he shouldn't sue? Appears the man did work for this conglomerate and never got paid. All hail the mighty COR! But, since they picked Watertown...it's OK. Hypocrisy.

Crows and chickens in the City of the Future. An excellent pick for one of the major entrances to this city.

Folks should be thankful that it's not a Chinese business that has set-up shop to manufacture cloned/stolen products from our own defense contractors so that one day they may use them against us. But of course every time we shop at "Super China Mart" or "China Club," the Chinese spend 20% of their profits on defense. So we, the American public, are quietly building China's armies.

Too bad a food place turned into a shit manufacturing plant,going from making chicken salad to chicken shit.

Great point Max. But the vast majority don't care.

Lundy could learn something from this chicken plant. He should start by opening a "meat inspection" plant next to Car Freshener and then slowly change it over to a slaughterhouse without going through planning board approval.

Example of the complete falacy hat these type of firms add any value whatsoever to a community, and local employees.

2:17 makes a great point. He don't want no stinkin' Muslims coming here to work in the chicken plant. Never mind that USA today is a lying rag of propaganda print.

At least its some kind of jobs other than retail, food service or call center.
10:52AM What's the comments about chicken shit, I guess you are too illiterate to read.

7:33AM it's not a slaughter house, its an inspection plant. And as far as the slaughter house, it should be built and the hell with Sue happy Carfreshner, all they do is sue everyone and don't care about their employees. I think they should build the slaughter house and watch the stinky trees stay put since its a BS ploy of an idiot to pull out that many jobs and close 3 buildings and try to build the same 3 buildings elsewhere, get the same tax breaks and hire the same amount of people without bankrupting your company. I say goodbye stinky trees.

Jeff, as 9:48 said your a bit of a hypocrite to say it's ok for COR to pull out of West Carthage as long as it help Watertown. He should sue them, they screwed Syracuse and are the same jerks who built a luxury housing center behind target only to ask for a damn tax break that screws the WCSD.

Max your whining about Walmart or Sam's Club shows how out of touch you are. Your choice would be what, Kmart, Target, Kohl's or some other place? All of their wares are 90% Chinese made as well so your argument is null.

3;41 - you realize of course that the minimum wage in Mexico is currently 4.50 and only 1.40 in the DR , where buildings are being virtually given away to entice investment. It's hard to comprehend if your posts about busienss basics are intentionally obtuse, or just plain old North of 90 stupid.
