SYRACUSE - A fundraiser proposed for the Syracuse Aquatic Center is on the Syracuse City Council's agenda Wednesday, June 12.

Julie Beach is scheduled to ask for a special liquor license to be used on Friday, June 28, for the fundraiser.

According the Facebook posts, a  group of moms started Project Playground in 2022 to replace and upgrade playground equipment at Williams Park.

The group is raising funds for a matching grant for the $550,000 project. Recent fundraisers include running concessions at Syracuse softball games and Egg My Yard before Easter. Upcoming events include a Gatorade and bake sale during the Syracuse citywide garage sales June 21 and a golf tournament and auction on July 13.

Also on Wednesday's agenda is an amendment to a contract with JEO regarding electrical service to the city's new water supply south of Syracuse. Meeting documents say property easements will likely be needed for the east side of south 28th Road. The electrical line will cross Muddy Creek at two locations six miles south of Syracuse.

The amendment includes additional costs of $82,500 including design services.

An ordinance that would authorize the city to borrow $400,000 for utility upgrades is among meeting documents.

The agenda says Tammy Ingwerson has made an application through the downtown revitalization program for property at 315 5th St. County records say Bloom Haven purchased the property, formerly the Treasure Trove.
