Heated debate, cutbacks and tax rebates...

From Business Today:

Public subsidies for private development have become the way of doing business in Western New York. Few projects get done without some sort of public investment, usually through tax abatements, but also through direct investment. The request for state money to help with the preservation and development of the Statler Towers sparked a heated debate Wednesday between downtown developer and former candidate for governor Carl Paladino and downtown restaurateur Mark Croce, who hopes to develop the Statler.

Greatbatch Inc., a premier Western New York company, announced it was trimming 80 jobs across the company in a restructuring. The impact on the company's headquarters and research center in Clarence was not outlined.

The IRS has a nice surprise for 249 people in the region: unclaimed tax refunds. See if your name is on the list.
