November 2016 updates

Prescription Drug Disposal – The Camillus Police Department is providing Camillus residents an easy, safe and convenient way to properly dispose of expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs by placing a permanent medication collection box located in the Municipal Building.

Camillus police detectives will be responsible for the collection, security and destruction of drugs from the heavy steel, locked box that works much like a bank deposit-collection device.  This secure medication collection box was purchased for our residents with money seized from local drug dealers, is monitored with a video camera, will be emptied frequently and the contents placed in the police station’s vault while awaiting destruction.

Prescription drug abuse in the United States is increasing at alarming rates, especially for young adults who report they can easily obtain prescription pills from medicine cabinets in their own and other people’s homes.  This type of drug abuse is a major concern in communities across our country, including Camillus.  This new program will take drug disposal efforts to a new level in our town and reduce the availability of prescription drugs that have the potential to cause great harm in our community.

Breakfast with Santa at the Fairmount Fire Department – December 4th from 8 am to 1 pm. Adults $7.00, children under 10 – $5.00, family of 4 or more $25.00. Pancakes, eggs, sausage, hash browns, toast, juice & coffee – a feast to keep you warm on a winter morning.

Winter Parking – The Camillus Police Department is requesting the assistance of our citizens to keep our roadways safe during the upcoming winter months.

In order to ensure safe roadways and to assist the Camillus Highway Department with their excellent snow removal efforts, Camillus Police Officers will be enforcing the winter parking ordinance.

The Town of Camillus ordinance states that, “No motor vehicle or other vehicles of any kind shall be allowed or permitted to park on any town road or on property owned by the Town of Camillus between the hours of 1:00am to 6:00am from December 1st to April 1st of the succeeding year.”

Each violation of this ordinance is declared to be a traffic infraction punishable by a fine of not less than $25 for the first offense and by a fine of no less than $25 for each subsequent offense, plus towing charges.

For information regarding Winter Parking Regulations for the Village of Camillus call (315)672-3484.

Inland Cargo Port – Engineers preparing the report on the Inland Port have named Camillus as the one of six potential sites. Engineers and officials associated with the project met with the Town Board and shared conceptual drawings detailing the plans for the project. The site would be located on waste bed 12 on the former Allied Chemical site. The site is south of the CSX railroad tracks, between Route 695 and Airport Rd. across from the Fairgrounds. The property is isolated from residential areas, it is located next to the railroad line and has plenty of room for the off loading of Cargo. There is also plenty of room for warehousing and manufacturing facilities that often follow these projects. Truck traffic from the site will not enter any local roadways. They will use the highway to get to Route 81 or I-90. The hope is that this could bring hundreds or even thousands of jobs to the area. We hope to hear a final decision soon.
