East Syracuse Mayor Robert Tackman on Wednesday evening, lifted the State of Emergency declaration that had been in place for more than 24 hours after strong storms tore through the village. "I wouldn't say we're in great shape, but we are in better shape," the Mayor said. The powerlines and large trees that had blocked roads are now removed - although small debris remains. The Mayor is still urging extreme caution.
Garbage pick up in East Syracuse remains on schedule. As for storm debris, crews will be out picking that up - so neighbors are encouraged to set it to the curb, the Mayor said.
