Paving slated for the Erie Canal Towpath

New York State Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation says
"Paving Slated for Old Erie Canal Towpath" 

There is a project underway to begin preping the Old Erie Canal Towpath for paving from Butternut Street to the footpath bridge across from Green Lakes State Park.  A small crew began clearing debris from this section of the towpath on Monday, August 17, 2015.  During the initial preparation the towpath will remain open.

Once this initial work is done, for safety reasons sections of the trail will need to close for the remainder of the prep work and the paving work. Please watch our website for dates and information regarding these anticipated closures.

Deer Management Program

The Village of Fayetteville is currently working on a deer management program.  The village wishes to address the issue of deer management due to:

  • Exposure to Lyme disease;

  • Increase in vehicular-deer incidents;

  • Property and landscape damage.

Please know that there are no further details available at this time.   The village will be consulting with the NYSDEC and several other resources.   In preparation for this program, the first step was to pass a local law to allow for discharge of arrows within the village limits.  This is now done but other aspects of the program such as participant eligibility have not been determined.

Once a plan and a procedure have been completely formulated, we will inform the community and be able to answer any questions.   Contrary to the information reported in a recent article, procedures have not yet been established.  There have been several calls received and we thank you but we are not seeking any volunteers at this time.  We appreciate your patience until the details are finalized and made available.

New 211 Service in Onondaga County

Onondaga County has just gone live with 211 service.  The program is described as follows:

Locating basic resources such as food, shelter, employment, or health care may mean calling dozens of phone numbers, then struggling through amaze of agencies and services to make the right connections. The 211 system helps residents find resources by dialing a simple three-digit number.  In July 2000 the Federal Communications Commission assigned the three-digit dialing code 2-1-1 for the exclusive purpose of providing widespread access to community information and referral services.

211 CNY brings together organizations in the community to better serve the residents of five counties: Onondaga, Oswego, Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence. 211 is a helpful starting point for areas with small fragmented rural communities that may not be as connected as bigger cities. Under a simple, easy to remember, three digit phone number, updated information is kept under national standards, and the call or use of the database is free and available 24/7. “

You can dial 211 from your home phone, cell phone or our office phone (Note – you DO NOT need to dial 9 first from the office phone.)
