ES-M also named to overall list
Business First, a Buffalo-based magazine that conducts annual evaluations of the 100 top school districts throughout Upstate New York, last week released its 2014 results — and ranked Jamesville DeWitt Central School District no. 17 in Upstate New York and no. 4 in Onondaga County. East Syracuse-Minoa was also named to the list at no. 172 out of 432 schools.
The Fayetteville-Manlius School District maintained its number two ranking in academics and number one ranking for math out of 432 Upstate public school districts for the fourth consecutive year, according to a Buffalo-based business magazine.
The disagreement between the village of Manlius and the town of Manlius over which municipality should be the lead agency to create the proposed new fire station at the corner of Enders Road and Route 92 last week received some direction from the state Department of Environmental Conservation, which issued an opinion in favor of the village.
DeWitt Town Board Member Jack Dooling caused a slight political stir recently when he sent a flyer for a political fundraiser to a handful of town employees using their town email addresses. Town Supervisor Ed Michalenko, who has called Dooling’s email “inappropriate” and “unfortunate,” sent an email to town employees the following day apologizing for their receipt of Dooling’s email.
More than 200 community residents — mostly high school and college students — turned out on a cold, windy Sunday last weekend to participate in the annual Cazenovia Crop Walk for hunger. And they raised more than $2,500 for local and world hunger programs.
Business First, a Buffalo-based magazine that conducts annual evaluations of the 100 top school districts throughout Upstate New York, last week released its 2014 results — and named Cazenovia Central School District no. 5 Upstate, no. 3 in the Syracuse region and no. 1 in Madison County.
The Nelson Town Board is moving forward with its work on the town’s 2015 finances, and last week adopted the tentative budget and approved a local law to override the state tax levy cap. The tentative budget is only the first stage in the budgeting process, so the current working numbers and potential tax rate for 2015 have not been released to the public.
To the editor: The members of American Legion Auxiliary of Liverpool Unit 188 would like to express our sincere appreciation for the men and women who served in the United States Armed Forces.
To the editor: Assemblyman Al Stirpe has done a lot for the people of our community. Taxes are always a big issue. According the CPA who prepares my family’s taxes, New York State is a great place to live for retirees. The truth is that many middle-income retirees pay little or no state income tax because of our tax laws. Further, many of us 65 and over benefit from the Enhanced STAR Program, a program that reduces our school property tax obligation that Al helped preserve. And lowering property taxes help us all.
Though it doesn’t yet have a budget to present, the town of Lysander will seek public comment on it next month. The Lysander Town Board voted Oct. 20 to authorize Town Clerk Lisa Dell to advertise for public hearings for the 2015 preliminary budget and a local law to exceed the 2 percent state tax cap. The hearings will be held at 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 6, in the auditorium of Lysander Town Hall.
If the town of Clay’s 2015 budget remains unchanged, residents will see a 3.38 percent increase in their property taxes, which amounts to $10.21 per household on a $100,000 house outside the village of North Syracuse. Residents inside the village will see a decrease of $5.58 a year.
This year marks my fifth working on the budget as an Onondaga County legislator. In that time, the economy made a dramatic downward turn, and has shown signs recently of a slight recovery. Fortunately, our county has been able to weather the economic changes fairly well. As I spent the past few weeks combing through the 2015 budget from the county executive, I am pleased to share the budget as presented proposed to keep the property tax levy flat, and even reduced spending by $6 million. In dollars and cents, that is a proposed tax rate of $5.17 per $1,000, a new historic low for our county.
Representatives from the Greater Baldwinsville Chamber of Commerce addressed the Baldwinsville Village Board at its regular meeting Thursday, Oct. 16. The chamber wants the village to assist with its annual Christmas tree lighting, which will take place Saturday, Dec. 6.
