Operation Oswego County: Operation Oswego County: An Economic and Job Development Corporation Serving Oswego County By L. Michael Treadwell, CEcD, executive director, Operation Oswego County

O

peration Oswego County (OOC) is a private, nonprofit organization that works to enhance and sustain the business and industrial climate of Oswego County. To achieve that goal, we provide comprehensive assistance to existing businesses and those seeking to locate here. OOC is a full-service economic development organization ready to serve businesses, whether they are developing a business plan, looking for the best site or searching for financing or other assistance. OOC’s primary objectives are to help create new job opportunities, retain employment, build a broader real property tax base, diversify the economy and improve the area’s quality of life all through a planned, organized and environmentally friendly economic development process. Since 1953, we have helped deliver over $4.6 billion in investments and nearly 28,000 new and retained jobs to Oswego County. We have grown from a local, voluntary, community-spirited development organization to becoming a county-wide comprehensive and proactive economic development arm. We are guided by a board of directors made up of community-minded people from business, industry, labor, education, agriculture and government throughout Oswego County. We are primarily supported by a combination of voluntary contributions, local, state and federal governmental funding, and through administrative services contracts for economic development. As a county-wide, comprehensive economic development organization, we can provide, among other things: n Site Selection Assistance. An

8

inventory of industrial sites and available buildings enables us to find homes for new businesses quickly. n Financial Packaging. We help businesses access appropriate financing from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Empire State Development Corporation, the County of Oswego Industrial Development Agency (IDA), the CNY REDC CFA process and other state, local and federal financing sources. We also help companies secure bank financing which is always the primary source of funds for most projects. n Planning and Coordination. We can help businesses with permitting, zoning and coordinating activities with state and local agencies. n Industry/Government Liaison. OOC serves as a liaison between companies and governmental agencies. n Assistance in Accessing Special Incentive Programs. We can help eligible businesses receive real property tax abatements, sales tax exemptions, job training, low-interest financing, state grants and tax credits, utility incentives and more. n Retention/Expansion Outreach Programs. OOC is focused on helping existing employers with expansion initiatives as well as in overcoming barriers that may be impeding business success. n Specialized Research and Technical Assistance. We provide businesses with information and data to assist in decision making. This can be during the attraction process or with existing employers looking to grow and expand their business in Oswego County. OOC coordinates and implements

special economic development initiatives to enhance the potential to create and retain jobs in Oswego County. Some of these initiatives include: n Industrial/Business Parks. OOC operates five industrial/business parks in Oswego County — the Oswego County Industrial Park in Schroeppel, the Airport Industrial Park in Volney, the Lake Ontario Industrial Park in the city of Oswego, the Columbia Mills Business Park in Minetto and the Peck Road Industrial Site in the town of Richland. Other sites around the county are currently being studied for potential business parks. n Manufacturing Start-Up Facility. Plans are being formulated to establish a 30,000-sq.-ft. facility at the Nestle site in Fulton. n Business Incubators. The Business Expansion Center in the city of Oswego is designed to help non-retail, industrial and service businesses achieve significant growth and development during their early stage start-up with the intention of eventually relocating into private commercial space. Plans are being formulated on establishing potential flexible spec buildings and finding a location for a new small business incubator. n Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprise Program. OOC can help new and expanding businesses obtain Minority and Women Business Enterprises state designation, as well as other necessary development support. n SBA Certified Development Company. OOC is authorized to finance projects using the SBA 504 loan program which can fund up to 40% of fixed asset financing for eligible businesses at below market rates.

board member, Oswego Teachers Federal Credit Union. How do you describe your managerial philosophy or approach? “I’m a collaborative leader. My leadership profile is based on the Kouzes and Posner “Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership” model, which I used as the foundation for my doctoral dissertation. We are data-driven but really more people-driven. Education is a people business and you have to be dynamic, even as a teacher. I interview all the finalists for teaching positions because I want to see if I would want to sit in their class. I didn’t come here from another district — everyone knows who I am and I would treat all staff members with respect and collegiality. I treat our building and grounds staff members the same as I would a member of my executive cabinet.” What type of skill sets do you possess which make you an effective leader? “Communication and experience. I followed a traditional path to the superintendency — I spent many years as a teacher and principal, building my credibility and took that with me to the central offices when I was named assistant superintendent. I very methodically built my ladder and it’s worked out. I make every decision, whether it be for the budget, or hiring a teacher, or programming at the high school, as if all our students were my own children and how it will affect them.” How can the business climate in the region be improved? “Support and enhance the education in our community and continue to enhance partnerships with organizations like SUNY Oswego, Oswego Health and other component school districts in our county. If we produce more fully prepared and lifeready graduates, they can come back and make their own successful lives in Oswego. I tell our graduates — go out and get a great education and hopefully many of you will come back because Oswego is a great place to live and raise a family.” What do you do for fun? “I love to cook and spend time with my family, including my wife, children and grandchildren. I also teach in the doctoral program in executive leadership at St. John Fisher College in Rochester. I spend quite a bit of time on weekends in the Lake George/Saratoga Region, where my wife is a superintendent of schools as well.”

Career highlights: President Deborah F. Stanley is the 10th president of the State University of New York at Oswego.

This has helped me work with staff members at every level and has provided me with a level of credibility that all staff deserves. I like to think of myself as a listener first as I always seek first to understand and then be understood. I would never ask anyone to do something that I myself would not do. I absolutely love working with district level administrators, building principals and assistant principals, teachers and support staff, and our many wonderful students that expect to come to school everyday and be both challenged and supported.” How can the business climate in the region be improved? “We look to continue to strengthen the partnership we have with local businesses, colleges and universities in order to provide the best job shadowing, mentoring, and internship opportunities for our students no matter which career pathway they are interested in. We continue to seek feedback from local businesses as to the skill sets that they are looking for in potential employees so we can make sure we have the courses and opportunities that will match the need. What do you do for fun? “Family is extremely important to my wife and I. On weekends, you can find me fishing with an amazingly supportive wife and two wonderful sons, aged 7 and 5. I also enjoy bringing my family to the many school-related evening activities, such as band competitions, sporting events, concerts and theatrical shows. It is truly a win-win for me because I get to spend quality time with my family doing things that they seem to enjoy, while supporting our school community.”

Today, it offers all main products for reprographic printers from its two locations with a next-day delivery service. That allows the company to bring the value of its entire line of digital printing papers directly to the end user. The plans for 2020 are to grow in this space and constantly add new offerings to the company’s regional markets in the Northeast and Southwest. nnOperations: Incorporated in 1961 under the name Lee Schoeller Papers, the company manufactured photographic, digital imaging and specialty papers at the Pulaski site from 1964 until 2005. The Schoeller Group was then restructured to meet changes in the imaging printing market as well as paper manufacturing technologies. As a result, Felix Schoeller concentrated its activities on converting and distribution of imaging and specialty paper products for the North American market. Over the last 15 years, the facility has been transformed into a world-class paper-converting center. The site also houses the North American sales and marketing group and financial and administrative services. With a total of 15 manufacturing lines and around 200 employees, Felix Schoeller North America is the country’s largest converting company for high-quality photographic and digital printing products. In 2018, the company acquired a converting and distribution company for digital printing materials in Anaheim, Calif. The expansion to the West Coast allows Felix Schoeller to

Total assets grew $51.9 million, or 5.9%, to $933.1 million as of Dec. 31, 2018. This increase is principally the result of continued loan growth as total loans grew $39.4 million, or 6.8%, reflecting increased activity in the commercial real estate portfolio. Loan growth was achieved primarily through the bank’s increased penetration of the Syracuse and surrounding Onondaga County markets, reflective of the company’s success in executing its strategic initiatives relating to increased brand awareness and operating presence in those markets. The bank’s total deposits as of Dec. 31, 2018 were $727.1 million, which represents deposit growth of $3.5 million when compared to the prior year-end. This growth was mitigated by a $28.3 million decrease in municipal deposits over that same time frame. The decrease in municipal deposits was largely due to factors that management believes to be transitionary. The continued successful expansion of Pathfinder Bank is also attributable to a consistent and measured strategy for growth that is built around its core strengths. The bank continues to see opportunity for growth and organic market expansion in its surrounding communities. In order to capitalize on this opportunity, in November of 2018, the bank expanded its presence in Onondaga County by opening a new full-service location in Clay. This new branch marks the bank’s third location in Onondaga County. The bank also acquired its second location within the city of Syracuse during the fourth quarter of 2018, which it plans to renovate and open as a new full-service location in 2020.

Serving Oswego County for 30 years with Quality Craftsmanship and Experience nnWhat’s new: In May of 2019, Attis Industries Inc., a diversified innovation and technology holding company, acquired the corn ethanol plant and grain malting operation from Sunoco. The ethanol plant immediately became an essential element of Attis’ operations and will be pivotal in the company’s expanding technology portfolio as it develops the site into a state-of-the-art green tech campus. nnOperations: For nearly 25 years, the town of Volney was home to a Miller Brewing plant. The plant sat vacant until 2007 when it was repurposed as an ethanol production facility valued at over $200 million. In 2009, the owners filed for bankruptcy and the facility was sold for $8.5 million to Sunoco. Sunoco immediately invested more than $20 million to improve processes and technologies with the goal of creating one of the most technologically advanced bio-fuel production facilities in the U.S. On June 21, 2010, the facility returned to production and 24/7/365 operation. At full production rate, this advanced production facility is able to produce in excess of 85 million gallons of fuel-grade ethanol per year, 480 million pounds of dried distillers grains and carbon dioxide, and 2 million gallons of corn oil for biodiesel production. The facility purchases over 20 percent of New York’s corn production every year, contributing in excess of $100 million to the state’s economy through corn purchases alone.

One area of focus for the Y is education, particularly early education and home-school groups. In 2019, the Oswego’s YMCA’s Homeschool Extension

56

program nearly doubled. The Oswego YMCA is the only drop-off homeschool program in the area and the most affordable. Parents are not required to teach, help or participate at all. In 2018, the Oswego YMCA expanded to offer its Homeschool Extension Program twice a week, and now it offers the program to the Oswego Community Christian School on a third day of the week. OCCS had been struggling to offer consistent enrichment and special programming to its students, so the Y offered to teach music, art and gym to all students in grades 1-8. Continuing to focus on the identified education needs of the community, the Oswego YMCA began to offer its Little Learners Program. This is a preschool program targeted at 2 and 3 year olds. The program is a play-based and life skills-based structured program. Students are not required to be potty trained, so they can learn this important skill when they are fully ready. Thanks to generous donations from the Richard S. Shineman Foundation along with member support, the Oswego YMCA has been able to undergo a renovation project of over $50,000 to the program space that is utilized for its family and education programs. With this new space, the Oswego YMCA has been able to meet an additional identified community need of drop-off childcare. This service is open to any community members to utilize for children aged 3 months to 10 years old. This allows childcare service for up to three hours at the affordable rate of $6 per hour for nonmembers and $4 per hour for members. nnOperations:The Oswego YMCA was established in 1855. The Y is an association of men, women and children committed to bringing about lasting personal and social change. With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y enables youth, adults, families and communities to be healthy, confident, connected and secure. Over the past two years, the Oswego

YMCA has reassessed its programming and how to best meet the needs of the community.

Airport. In 2019, Oswego County launched an innovative public-private partnership that will facilitate the construction of a new jet hangar in an effort to address corporate clients’ needs. Demand for additional space for similar needs has been growing as a result. The county has received grant assistance for the construction of a new T-hangar that will help generate additional activity and revenue. After almost a decade of planning and various efforts to secure outside funding, the county is prepared to move forward with the extension of public wastewater services from the city of Fulton to the county’s airport property and the neighboring airport industrial park. Work also began in 2019 on the construction of a new terminal building enhancing the county’s ability to attract and property serve customers at the airport. nnNational Marine Sanctuary: The federal government is conducting an in-depth analysis that is required to designate a four-county area of Lake Ontario that includes Oswego County as a national marine sanctuary. This designation will help preserve hundreds of years of commercial and military maritime history and it considered a transformative initiative when coupled with other waterfront improvements under way by the city of Oswego and others. nnLake Ontario shoreline recovery: Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Lake Ontario Resiliency and Economic Development Initiative, or REDI, has allocated $300 million across the state to help protect the county’s shorelines from future damages. The charge before the county is to do this in a way that can also lead to future economic development opportunities. This is a bottom-up process designed so that every region can identify its own priorities and projects. In Oswego County, all the respective municipal leaders whose communities were impacted by the higher water levels on Lake Ontario have been involved in the process of identifying first and secondary priority projects. Because marinas are critical to the small business infrastructure of waterfront recreation, a vital part of the initiative is to help them recover and prepare for continued operation.

The county continues to advocate for consideration for these properties that are a significant part of its tourism economy. nnOperations: Oswego County government provides services to all residents of the county’s 22 towns, nine villages and two cities.

and investors led by William Wallace. The two facilities merged in 1968 in an effort to consolidate medical services and became Crouse Irving Memorial Hospital. The name was shortened to Crouse Hospital in 1996. The health care facility continues to stay true to the basic fundamentals that have been the foundation of its success over the 137 years — quality care delivered by more than 4,000 talented doctors, nurses and support team members in an environment that fosters healing, health and wellness.
