INSIDE THE FLX: Auburn City Clerk Chuck Mason, the first Rock the Top concert of the year, Nick’s Ride 4 Friends, homeless outreach and more (podcast)

In our weekly visit with the City Clerk, we discussed tonight’s first “Rock the Top” concert of the season atop the downtown parking garage.

Presentations at last night’s City Council meeting:

  • Nick’s Ride 4 Friends. Mary Giannone and Randy Smith discussed their battles with addiction. The presentation also included photos of the clubhouse renovations and an overview of their volunteer team.
  • The Cayuga Community Health Network Street Outreach program, aimed at identifying people at risk of becoming homeless. The presentation included the impact the program has made over the last several months, including helping four people find employment, two people who found permanent housing, four people who received clothing upon their release from jail, and ten who were referred to the CAP mobile food pantry.
  • Renovations at the Schine’s Theater. Progress is being made, including the beginning of repairs to the theater’s historic marquee.
  • The summer recreation program. Plans call for art, literacy, sports, and movement, and culinary arts programs in multiple locations and partnerships with the Auburn Doubledays, Perform 4 Purpose, Seymour Library, local dance studios, the Booker T. Washington Center, Wegmans, and more.

We also talked about today’s dedication of historical markers in Auburn as part of the National Votes for Women Trail. The dedication is at 3 p.m. at the Equal Rights Heritage Center on South St.
