SYRACUSE — The Syracuse Town Council held a brief special town council meeting Wednesday, Nov. 24, to tie up some loose ends from its regular meeting held Nov. 17.
Council President Paul Stoelting, Councilmen Tom Hoover, Larry Martindale and Bill Musser along with Police Chief Jim Layne and Clerk-Treasurer Virginia Cazier and Town Manager Mike Noe held the meeting via zoom.
The council approved the purchase agreement for Hammerhead, a company that will be building in the technology park. The agreement was approved at the Syracuse Redevelopment Commission meeting held Nov. 17.
Also approved was permission for Cazier to cut a check to McCormick Motors for $33,573 to purchase a truck for the Syracuse Street Department. Noe explained he wanted the truck before the December council meeting was held.
Also approved was an amendment to the Travel Star purchase agreement which changed the business name of one of the parties involved. It was noted this was also done at the November town council meeting.
Tabled was an agreement with Bose McKinney and Evans for legal services at $525 per hour to establish a tax increment finance district for Aluminum Insight which will also be in the tech park. A question came up as to why a TIF district was being developed for one entity when the technology park is already a TIF. Noe didn’t have an answer to the question. He noted neither the town attorney nor a representative from the law firm who could answer the question was available.
