INSIDE THE FLX: Auburn City Clerk Chuck Mason; keys to the city, Park Ranger retiring, skate park construction delayed (podcast)

In this episode, it’s our weekly visit with Auburn City Clerk Chuck Mason and City Council recap.

  • Two keys to the city were presented by Mayor Quill connected with the Kate and Harry Freeman International Underground Railroad Month Proclamation.  The first was to Pastor Ted Freeman, Jr.  Second was to National park Service Ranger Kim Szewczyk. Ranger Szewczyk is retiring at the end of the year.
  • 2 public hearings were held.  The first was for the Restore NY Communities Initiatives Grant Application for 22 E. Genesee Street. The second was for the city of Auburn Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) 2022 Program Year Amendment. Because no contractors are available to start work on the Casey Park skate park this year, and CDBG funds must be spent in the year they are allocated, that portion of this year’s grant will be used for sidewalk repair.
  • Superintendent of Public Works Mike Talbot and representatives from CNY Sports made a presentation on the 2022 Department of Parks and Recreation Summer Event and Recreational Programs.
