The village of East Syracuse will hold a village open house event from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 5, at the village municipal building, 204 North Center St., East Syracuse.
Proposal will be on the ballot Nov. 4
On this year’s election ballot the Smart Schools Bond Act, a New York State legislative proposal, will be up for vote. If approved, this act could bring $2 billion in aid for technology to public school districts in the state, including roughly $60 million to those in Onondaga County.
A nearly $65,000 change order for construction on the Greener, Greater Grove project was approved by the East Syracuse-Minoa school board last week to cover unexpected costs associated with asbestos abatement.
Petition in favor of ‘saving’ the business receives more than 200 signatures
Pascale Bakehouse in Fayetteville is moving to DeWitt — the result of neighbor complaints and a village of Fayetteville mandate that would be cost prohibitive for the business.
While the Manlius Town Board will accept a state decision that the village board is the lead agency for construction of the proposed new fire station, town councilors last week unanimously voted to reject the village’s asserted jurisdictional authority over the zoning review aspects of the project and to assert instead the town’s own jurisdiction over zoning.
So many Manlius town residents have been upset — and complaining — about the town board’s August decision to eliminate the opt out option for municipal trash and brush pickup that last week the board reversed the policy.
Project will improve the district’s athletic stadium and install a new turf field
After two years of work, the Jamesville-DeWitt school district will be allowed to install a turf field at the high school’s main athletic stadium. School district voters gave their overwhelming approval to the $3.1 million capital project during a public referendum vote on Oct. 28. The results showed a nearly 3-to-1 victory ratio for the referendum, with 619 votes to approve and 254 to reject.
In the hopes of both improving graduation rates, the New York State Board of Regents last week approved a plan to add flexibility to its graduation requirements. On Monday, Oct. 20, the Board of Regents agreed to create a 4+1 pathway option, which would allow students to opt out of one of the social studies exams currently required for graduation. Instead, they could take a "comparatively rigorous" assessment in career/technical education (CTE), science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), the humanities, foreign languages or the arts.
For too long, New York’s system for drawing electoral maps has been broken. Under current legislation, members of the New York State Legislature draw the lines for legislative and congressional districts. Those lines are redrawn every 10 years by a committee made up of sitting legislators. That means that the people responsible for drawing the lines are the very people who benefit from how the lines are drawn.
Polls will be open 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The possibility of construction for a $3.1 million capital project and update to the main athletics stadium, which includes installation of a multi-use turf field, at Jamesville-DeWitt high school is approaching with a Tuesday, Oct. 28 vote. The vote goes from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and will take place in the main high school gym foyer.
The Fayetteville-Manlius school district is hosting a seminar focusing on NCAA recruiting and eligibility on Monday, Oct. 27 at the high school’s main auditorium.
Missed chances, turnovers costly in 28-20 defeat
Christian Brothers Academy’s football team had to grow up a lot in the 2014 season, but it still carried the dream of repeating the Section III Class AA title its more experienced predecessors claimed a season ago.
Fishkin qualifies for state championships in February
Even at less than full strength, and even with several challengers poised to topple them, the Jamesville-DeWitt/F-M girls gymnastics held on to the Section III large school team championship.
Proposed commercial development on North Burdick Street in Fayetteville approved to continue planning process
The Fayetteville Village Board last week gave a green light to a local developer to continue refining his plans to build an 8,000-square-foot commercial development across North Burdick Street from the Towne Center at Fayetteville.
