Syracuse Reacts To Vandalism, Fire Station Cramping

SYRACUSE – The Syracuse City Council agreed Wednesday to install surveillance cameras for protection of park property and enforcement of tree pile rules.

Syracuse Mayor KC  Ortiz told city council members Wednesday that the restrooms at Williams Park continue to be a target for vandalism and said they will be locked until further notice.

The council also noted that the sports complex building was broken into and candy was stolen. There has also been continual misuse of the brush and  leaf pile dump area.

The city council voted unanimously to purchase cameras for these areas.

The city council also agreed to upgrade the computer systems for the city offices. The $80,056 expense will be paid in part by the utilities department, Keno funds and a 3-year lease payment plan.

With firefighting equipment being built larger and the navigation of getting the equipment in and out of the fire station, a request was made by Fire Chief Bruce Neeman to widen Mohawk Street in front of the fire station.

The city budgeted $5,250 for the project.
The sand volleyball courts are completed at the complex and ready for use
