Census 2020

April 15th, 2019

I wanted to share some information to encourage everyone in the County of Onondaga to participate in the 2020 Census. The count begins approximately 1 year from now, but many are working right now to make sure all of our community members are aware of the Census and have the educational resources that explain the confidentiality laws around the census, answer any questions, and make sure community members are aware of the safety of the census and the need for as accurate a count as we can get!

The data that is collected during this census count will be used to determine many things about our relationship for the next 10 years with the Federal Government. This data will be used as the basis for distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to states, counties, and communities to support resources such as schools, hospitals, and fire departments. The link for information can be found here – 2020-confidentiality-factsheet

Census 2020 has some job openings currently that you may want to share as well. Please share the following link to any community members that may be interested in working for Census 2020.

Free Smoke Detectors Installed

April 7th, 2019

The American Red Cross has a new program called Sound the Alarm. Red Cross volunteers go to homes in the community, regardless of income or location, and test the current smoke alarms and they will replace them with new ones if needed. All homes are eligible for up to 3 new smoke alarms that are guaranteed to last for 10 years. In addition to installing the smoke alarms, volunteers also provide the residents with home fire safety education. So far, the program has been successful in saving 520 lives!

has held since taking office last fall. County Executive McMahon said, “It is truly inspiring to hear from so many people interested in getting involved and being part of the solution. As County Executive, I have the honor of making appointments to several County Boards and it’s exciting to offer this opportunity to members of our community.” McMahon continued, “Onondaga County is home to the best and brightest and getting new perspectives will help us move forward together. I can’t wait to work with our various County Boards as we address poverty, infrastructure and economic development.” The website is live now and can be found here: County Boards It lists each board with a brief description. Members of the community can choose which board or boards they are interested in serving on. As vacancies come up, resumes will be reviewed.
