A Special Thank You
To Village of East Syracuse Mayor Robert Tackman!
Robert spoke about his position as Mayor and about projects and problems in the Village of East Syracuse. He is a part time Mayor, in the third year of a four year term.
The Village Police Department has been abolished. East Syracuse pays $375,000 per year to the Town of DeWitt for police service, which includes one patrol car assigned to the Village 24/7. This change saved the Village 1.25 million dollars per year.
Although Robert works full time as a banker with a local credit union, he takes time to be a “hands on” Mayor. He rides with the Police and Fire Departments on calls to see first hand what goes on in the Village. Some programs which he recommended or are underway are: upgrades to the Parks & Recreation Department, a possible banquet center, concerts in the park, CPR courses, and a Heman Street Senior Center. You can read more about him on his Facebook page under his name.
