Local News

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The Syracuse Common Council is set vote on a new deer and tick management plan.

Back in June, an advisory group recommended a two-part plan for the city, focusing on tick-bite prevention and lethal management or culling. It would require the city to hire USDA sharpshooters at a cost not to exceed $55,000.

If implemented this fall, police will be aware of everything that’s happening, but for safety reasons,the public would not be told of the exact sites.
