Upcoming Referendum regarding LOSAP:

LOSAP (Length of Service Award Program) is a program set up to reward volunteer firefighters for their service to our community.  In order to benefit from LOSAP, firefighters must gain a certain amount of points every year by attending drills, alarm responses, community functions and serving the Village.  LOSAP is meant to act as a retirement benefit for volunteering their time when they retire.  Not all are eligible as it is a "point based" program.  At the upcoming election, the Village plans to hold a referendum on lowering the entitlement age requirement from 62 to 60 in order to receive their LOSAP award and will be asking if  you are in for of this amendment.

The Village is considering allowing "stores" to sell cannabis to increase Village revenue.

In addition, the Village is also considering allowing for designated spaces and businesses in the Village where patrons could go to smoke cannabis.  We would like to  hear what the citizens of North Syracuse have to say on this  matter.  To  make your voice heard, please answer our poll on both of these questions - they are on the bottom left of the main web page.
