The Nutrition Collaboration of Oswego County will hold an informational meeting regarding the Fulton Community Garden project. Scheduled for Tuesday, May 15, the meeting will be held at 6 p.m. in the community room of the senior building at Pathfinder Courts/Gilberts Grove housing complex.
According to committee member and Rural Health Network Coordinator Danielle Wert, the meeting is open to all Fulton community members and will outline the plan for the community garden that will be located at John Lincoln Park.
The future of the Fulton Public Library lies with those it serves most: residents of the Fulton City School District.
“Over the past few years, the library has lost $110,000 in funding from the City of Fulton,” said Marian Stanton, president of the Fulton Public Library Board of Trustees. “These drastic cuts have brought about significant changes in how we now operate.”
These changes include a reduction in the days that the library is open and the size of the staff.
State Senator Patty Ritchie honored 39 veterans from across Central and Northern New York, including eight from Oswego County, at a special ceremony held last week at Ft. Drum.
In addition to recognizing veterans from Oswego County, the senator announced retired US Army Col. Michael Plummer of Jefferson County, founder of the “Adopt-a-Platoon” program, as the 2012 inductee to the State Senate Veterans Hall of Fame.
“I’m honored to have the opportunity to say ‘thanks’ to these brave men and women who have one of the toughest, most selfless jobs there is — the job of protecting our freedom,” Ritchie said.
Oswego County Legislator Mike Kunzwiler wants an answer as to why members of the Democrat caucus did not receive the financial disclosure form required to be filled out by elected officials and appointed personnel.
Kunzwiler and the other Democrats said they received a letter from the county ethics board stating that the legislators disclosure forms had not been received and are due.
When Legislator Doug Malone attempted to address the absence of the form during Monday’s meeting of the legislature’s Strategic Planning and Government Committee, he was not allowed to speak to the issue because it was not on the agenda (see related story).
