Onondaga County

Governor Andrew Cuomo joined local officials Wednesday in Solvay to unveil details of a plan to revitalize the western side of Onondaga Lake.  

The $100 million project will include a 75-hundred seat lakefront concert pavilion across from the state fairgrounds.  Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney says it fits into the larger picture of the lake’s rebirth.   

The announcement of the project is part of Governor Cuomo's proposed budget, and comes after a plan to build a sports stadium in Downtown Syracuse fell through due to concerns from Mayor Stephanie Miner. 


  Retired Onondaga County Sheriff's Supervisor Toby Shelley wants to be the first new face in the job in 20 years.  He made the announcement Monday that he'll run for Sheriff in 2014, after an unsuccessful bid in 2010.  That's when Kevin Walsh won his 5th term in the post.  Walsh previously said he'll make a decision on running for reelection in January or February.
