October 22, 2014 Agenda 


From the Aurora Historical Society

This weekend: a Pop-Up Museum in Patrick Tavern, Saturday, 25 Oct, from 10 am- 1 pm. Patrick Tavern, built in 1793, is Aurora's oldest building.
The museum theme is "Top to Toe," with interactive displays of shoes and shoemaking, high-style clothing from the late 19th century, some great 1960s hats to try on for unique selfies, Nancy Baildon demonstrating hat making, and more.  Pop-Up Museums are designed to spark memories and conversations, and are fun for all ages.
Patrick Tavern is at 302 Main St.; watch for the flags. There is a parking lot entered from Dublin Hill Rd (right across from St. Patrick's). The parking lot entrance is handicapped accessible. Everyone is welcome! 

From the AuroraFest Committee

The committee will once again be selling wreaths for Christmas in Aurora.  They will be mixed greens in two sizes: 22" and 26" and the cost is $30.00 and $42.00, respectfully.  We are currently taking orders and quantities are limited so first come, first serve.  Contact Jeff Blum at 364-5438.


The October 2014 newsletter is now available on the Newsletters page.

Cayuga County Recycling Dates

Recycling dates (updated Oct. 15th)

Message from the Cayuga County Health Department

For Immediate Release: Wednesday, October 8, 2014
Contact: Eileen O’Connor, P.E.
Director of Environmental Health
Phone (315) 253-1405
Fax: (315)-253-1478
Countywide Forum on Manure Runoff in our Watersheds
A community discussion on manure and manure runoff in County watersheds will be held
on Wednesday, October 29 from 6 to 8 PM at the Cayuga Onondaga BOCES, 1879 West
Genesee St. Rd. Auburn NY. The forum was prompted by a number of manure runoff
incidents that occurred this past winter in Cayuga County and across the State.
The event is being organized by Cayuga County Legislators Keith Batman and Michael
Didio, with input from Cayuga County Director of Environmental Health Eileen
O’Connor, Soil and Water Conservation District Director Doug Kierst, Cornell
Cooperative Extension Agricultural Educator Judy Wright, and Niles Town Supervisor
Charlie Green.
The discussion will be moderated by BOCES Personnel Relations Director Randy Ray.
The public will be able to comment on a possible local law or resolution to limit the
spread of manure on frozen ground and the establishment of a buffer for manure
application near ditches and waterways. County residents who wish to voice their
concerns will be given three minutes to speak with an option for additional comments
after all are heard. According to organizers, “The hope is that by opening up dialogue on
this critical issue, we can come to better understand all sides and begin to move toward a
solution that is workable for the community.”
While manure handling and spreading is regulated by the NYS Department of
Environmental Conservation and the NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets,
organizers stress the importance of local input and opinion. “Those of us who share the
water, the land, and a community need to talk among ourselves and not leave
preservation of our water resources and our economic well-being to Albany.”
If you would like to pre-register to speak at the forum, or have any questions, please email your name and address to Keith Batman at kbatman@cayugacounty.us

Hydrilla Alert!

(From Cayuga Lake Watershed network)

Hydrilla is an aggressively invasive aquatic weed that spreads readily to produce choking green mats across wider expanses.  In mid-August 20011, Hydrilla verticillata was found infesting 166 acres in the Cayuga Inlet, which drains to Cayuga Lake's southern end in Ithaca.  Please click the link below for more information on identifying Hydrilla.
