Highway Garage Update

We have assembled a web page with the status of the importance of replacing our highway garage. This page has my earlier statements on the seriousness of the issue, plus a review done this week by the Star-Review newspaper, plus the content of a presentation done by our consulting engineers. I encourage all Cicero residents to view the page to understand the importance of moving this initiative forward to build a new highway garage. Thank you, and please share this information with your neighbors. Just CLICK HERE to view the webpage.

Public Hearing on Potential Hi-tech Business

A public hearing, which is required by the UDC (Urban Development Corporation) Act, will be held by the Corporation at the Cicero Town Hall, located at 8236 South Main Street, Cicero, New York on February 14, 2017, at 9:30 am to consider a plan to do research and development within the Town of Cicero for the Unmanned Secure Autonomous Flight Environment (U-SAFE) Capital Project in Onondaga County. This would entail development of hi-tech drones for an emerging market and would have positive benefits for our Town of Cicero.

This is potentially a great project for Cicero. I invite everyone to attend this hearing to learn about an exciting opportunity for hi tech job creation in our Town.  It’s also an opportunity to ask questions and to express your opinions. .

Overview of Highway Garage Issues

The Town of Cicero will be holding two informational meetings/open houses at the Town of Cicero highway garage on Saturday, February 4th, at 10:00 AM, and also on Wednesday, February 15th, at 6:30 PM. These meetings will give residents the opportunity to view the state of the highway garage. There will also be a public workshop on Monday, January 30th, 5:00 PM at Town Hall.

The time has come where the Highway Garage issue must be addressed. The existing 52 year old building has outlived its useful life. It is estimated that the cost to repair the roof and address the structural issues would be well over $700,000 dollars alone. However the existing facility would still not accommodate all of our equipment, the maintenance of that equipment, or be one that meets ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) or OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) regulations. We are obligated as a community to ensure that our employees have a safe and clean environment in which to work.

The Project consists of a proposed 65,000 square foot main Highway Garage replacing the existing building; a new Salt Barn, and Cold Storage Structures. The Project is anticipated to improve the delivery of services by the Highway Department by providing needed space for storage of equipment and materials, maintenance activities, and a safe work environment. New facilities are anticipated to increase energy efficiency and reduce operating costs.

I encourage you to attend and offer questions/comments. Written questions/comments may also be submitted by mail to the Town Clerk or by e-mail to the Town Clerk at clerk@ciceronewyork.net. 

  Thank you.

The Project consists of a proposed 65,000 square foot main Highway Garage building, replacing an existing building built in 1965, a new Salt Barn, Cold Storage Structures, and related site development.

The Project is estimated to cost approximately $9.8 million, which will be financed through a bond to be issued by the Town. The cost and financing structure is subject to change during the review and consideration of the Project.
