SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Anticipating a "feeding frenzy'' over New York state's $5 billion windfall, a dozen public officials, union leaders and contractors gathered this morning at Syracuse City Hall to advocate spending all of the money to repair roads, bridges, water pipes and other infrastructure.
Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner, state Senators John DeFrancisco and David Valesky, Assemblyman Al Stirpe and others said the state should use the money from a one-time settlement with banks to make long overdue infrastructure repairs.
The Constitution Pipeline, which will transport shale gas from Pennsylvania to New York, has received conditional approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. But some groups are looking for legal actions to halt the process. Anne Marie Garti, a founder of “Stop the Pipeline” and a volunteer lawyer representing “Stop the Pipeline” through the Pace Environmental Litigation Clinic, and Robert Nied, of the Center for Sustainable Rural Communities, say Constitution Pipeline lawyers’ threaten and intimidate landowners who refuse to sign easement agreements. They are calling on the Attorney General to intervene.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Centro, last week, announced proposed cuts to late-night and weekend services to make up for a $4.5 million budget gap.
The proposals are preliminary.
But they are significant: Centro would end bus routes after 9 p.m. on weeknights, after 7 p.m. on Saturdays and all service on Sundays.
Centro officials are talking with state leaders about solutions to its budget woes to avoid the drastic changes and steer the bus authority onto better, long-term financial footing. Centro officials also have asked the public to weigh in.

On Thursday, Feb. 19, we had a meeting at City Hall in Syracuse concerning CNY Centro. Centro is proposing service cuts to the Syracuse area. Local 580 is not in agreement with these cuts. We believe they should be adding services and hiring more drivers.
The Mission of CNYRTA is to provide services which are Safe, Convenient, Reliable and Environmentally responsible with a goal of maximizing the taxpayers return on investment. Cutting services does not meet these standards.
