Here is the happy thread you ordered...

Bausch & Lomb plans expansion adding 200 jobs

Rochester, NYUSA - ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A $25millionexpansion that will add 200 jobs is in the works at Bausch and Lomb's facility in Rochester. The company isn't talking about the plans until an official announcement scheduled for June 9th. But the Rochester City Council is considering a proposal that would extend an Empire Zone to Bausch and Lomb's optics center. According to the legislation, the company plans to build a 73,000 square-foot research and development center there and add 200 R-and-D jobs. The company currently employs 1,500 people in Monroe County -- 300 at its headquarters and 1,200 at its optics center. The optics center serves as Bausch and Lomb's main worldwide research and development facility. The state's Empire Zone program provides tax breaks to expanding businesses. The City Council legislation doesn't indicate a timeframe for the expansion.

Proposal to extend hours at bars in Rochester

Rochester, NYUSA - The issue of bars in Rochesterstaying open until 4:00 a.m.was up for discussionon Tuesday night,at a meeting of Rochester's Center City Task Force. The group is looking into ways of getting more people to come to downtown. Thetask force gives the people who live in the city, and run businesses, a chance to brainstorm better ways of doing business. One idea being tossed around, is letting bars stay open two extra hours. OnRochester's East End, the ideahas both supporters and opponents.

On Friday, the East End Festival takes off again. This time, the area is also home to two new bars, Daisy Dukes and ROC City Hots. Both are run by Ronnie Davis, and he wants Monroe County leadersto explore letting bars stay open until 4 a.m.,like those in New York City and Buffalo. Davis says the extra hours won't just improve his bottom line, but will also help patrons. He says most people don't come out until 11:00 p.m.and then they have to leavejust three hours later.

Milestones owner, Mike O'leary, says Buffalo bar owners tell himlater hours just bring the customers out later. He says itnever expands the time to do business and itincreases the bars' expenses. Currently,Rochester police officer patrol the East Endfrom 10:30 p.m. until 3:30 a.m. and get paid overtime. However, with bar hours expanded, police hours would have to be too. City councilmember Adam McFadden says, he hopes bar owners could pitch in to pay the difference. Davis says he believes the extra revenue makes the idea worth checking out. Monroe County officials tellNEWS 10NBCit would require the Monroe County legislature to pass a law, petitioning the state liquor authority to let bars stay open later. To date, no one in Monroe County can recall a time when this was even tried.
