INSIDE THE FLX: Auburn mayor talks denial of hotel tax + former Chemung Trust building project (podcast)

Auburn Mayor Jimmy Giannettino didn’t hold back when asked about the denial of the city’s proposed hotel tax. The measure, which needed to be brought forward by the city’s Assembly representative, was ultimately killed. Giannettino called it a contradiction, because that representative, Assemblyman John Lemondes carried through similar measures for Weedsport and Skaneateles. That wasn’t the only topic of discussion, though. GIannettino also gave an update on a city project that could be transformative for downtown and talked about the closure of Wells College.
