continued Kim O’Brien, chair of Friends of the East Syracuse Police Department, invites all village residents to meet at her home at 110 E. Heman St. at 5:15 p.m. Wednesday and walk to the informational meeting together. She’ll also be conducting a voter registration drive that night.
“The public hearing is going to be a good opportunity for the village residents to speak up, ask as many questions as they can, and I’m hoping that they get out to register to vote and that they vote to keep our police department,” she said.
The referendum vote is scheduled for Oct. 16.
