The score, 13.6 percent, puts the village in the “no designation category. A similar report recently designated the Skaneteles School District as “susceptible to fiscal stress.”

--Both Code Enforcement Officer John Cromp and Fire Chief Eric Sell expressed concern about snow being piled on top of fire hydrants.
