INSIDE THE FLX: Auburn City Clerk Chuck Mason, a moratorium on new smoke shops, Juneteeth, the summer rec program and more (podcast)

In our weekly visit with the City Clerk, we recapped actions taken by the City Council at its Thursday meeting and more.


  • A six-month moratorium on new smoke shops in the city. Several people have attempted to open shops selling cannabis before it’s legal to do so. The moratorium will give the city more time to update its zoning codes.
  • The Juneteenth celebration is this weekend in the city.
  • An agreement allowing Cayuga County Cooperative Extension to take over management of the Taste NY Market at the Equal Rights Heritage Center.
  • An extension of the agreement with the Auburn Downtown BID to run the center.
  • An agreement with CNY Sports Management Group to run sports programs as part of the city’s summer recreation program.
  • A resolution calling on Congress to pass “common sense” gun control legislation.
  • The return of the Prison City Ramblers Father’s Day car show at Emerson Park after a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19.
