Cortland Common Council meets tonight (September 3), beginning with a public hearing on proposed changes to certain parking areas in downtown Cortland.

Residents will have a opportunity to weigh in on the potential changing of certain spots down to two hour parking behind Frank and Mary’s Diner, as well as in the public lot across the street adjacent the Youth Bureau.

Council will also discuss the presence of U.S. Border Patrol agents in the city two weeks ago at the Central Avenue bus stop. Click here for more on that story. 

They’ll also once again raise the county workers’ compensation issue and update the public on where the city stands with leaving the plan.

Work on the city’s zoning code is also expected to continue tonight, with a potential vote on the agenda regarding recent amendments. They’ll also consider new requirements for concrete or asphalt driveways for non-owner-occupied, single-family residence driveways and parking lots.

There’s also an item on the agenda for discussion on potentially placing cameras at certain intersections in the city.

Finally, Mayor Tobin will submit to council the 2020 budgets for the city’s General, Water and Wastewater Funds, and close with his regular updates on Cortland’s $10M Downtown Revitalization Initiative.

Tonight’s meeting begins at 7:00 at city hall, 25 Court Street in Cortland. Click here for the full agenda.
