Auburn City Council ready to start 2020, will take up action on new public safety building

Auburn City Council is ready to get to work.

One of its newest members, Tim Locastro, who took the oath along with incumbent Councilor Jimmy Giannettino and Mayor Michael Quill, are optimistic about what this year can be for the city.

For his own effort, Locastro is the first Republican to be elected to city council in five years.

Gianettino captured the most votes of any candidate running in November’s election. Finger Lakes News Radio reports that among his focuses are ensuring that Governor Andrew Cuomo, and other state representatives continue to properly fund communities like Auburn.

Meanwhile, Mayor Quill is now set to serve a fourth term. Among the things he’d like to see change – is moving location of city council sessions.

City Council starts their 2020 efforts today, with a $10 million bond vote for the proposed new public safety facility.
