On Long Island, it's a frequent scenario: A private company threatens to move, or says it can't expand without government help.  So a county or town Industrial Development Agency grants breaks on property taxes and/or sales taxes to convince the company to stay or expand, thereby preserving or creating jobs on the Island.
