“The Putnam EDC is excited to partner with Tompkins Mahopac Bank; this is a timely investment as we continue to expand our marketing.” States Putnam EDC President Jill Varricchio.
The Putnam EDC’s Synergies for Success Investor Program supports the measurable return of member dollars. The creation of new jobs and retention of existing jobs impacts every citizen, municipality, and business in Putnam County and the Hudson Valley. Dollars spent and circulated as a result of those jobs increases spending power, thus mitigating tax rateables. As key factors in our local economy the Putnam EDC office strives to support these outcomes by target marketing developers and site selectors, while collaborating within each municipality and the broker community.
Through the support of its members, the Putnam EDC will be able to continue its on-going marketing campaign to promote balanced economic growth. In 2018 the PEDC is proud to facilitate the application of the anticipated $100 million Distillery that will bring 60-100 jobs to the Carmel location and generate additional tourism related revenue as it will become a tourist destination in the near future.
