Town Supervisor

Janet Aaron

This fall has been one of the most beautiful that I can remember. On every road there are spectacular trees with multiple colors. The reds are so vibrant this year. What a beautiful time of year.  

Since August, Town Board has been busy meeting 8 times with departments working on next year’s budget. It’s a very intense look, line by line of the needs and expectations in each department and working on the balance between what is being requested and the impact to our taxpayers. The public hearing for the 2023 budget is at 7 p.m. on November 7th

Feeney a Boxer from Skaneateles

Beth Batlle

Town Historian

Calling upon his Irish love of a good fight, Jack Feeney became the famous professional boxer from Skaneateles. He was born to James E. Feeney and Mary Stinson Feeney on April 14, 1886 on the hillside farm on Old Seneca Turnpike, where he lived throughout his entire life. He was one of ten children whose grandparents had immigrated from Ireland in the 1840's.

As a kid, he and his brothers, as well as other boys from the neighborhood, worked out in the yards and barns of Skaneateles. He then trained under boxer Billy Ryan, one of the best featherweight and lightweight boxers from Syracuse. Jack was 22 when he fought his first professional fight in Utica in 1908 against "Kid" Mathews.

Parks Department submitted by Sue Murphy

What a summer! Austin Park, The Charlie Major Nature Trail and The Conservation Area were very busy. The parks employees worked so hard to make sure the community could use the swimming area, farmers market, ballfields, and parking lot in Mandana for their boat trailers.

Waterfront – Our heartfelt thanks go out to our lifeguards – Keady Azzam, Jacob French, Braden Gryzlo, Nolan Gryzlo, Amelia Musso, Peter McCaffrey, Benjamin Patterson, Matt Persampier, Ryan Persampier, Alice Spaulding, Thomas Parisi and Allison Whipple. Without them we couldn’t have opened. Many of them, this was their first job, and we were thrilled that they rose up to the challenge, especially with the lack of lifeguards nationwide. A special thank you goes out to Keri Steves Fey for her guidance with the new lifeguards. She recently joined the budget office at the Town, but since she was a head lifeguard for several years, she was always up to helping out and lending words of wisdom to our new guards. THANK YOU!

News from the Skaneateles Ecumenical Food Pantry

Who we are

The Pantry is a resource for those in the community who are experiencing food insecurity, providing food to qualifying households in the Skaneateles School District town and village. We are open Tuesdays from 9:30 to 11:00 am and Thursdays from 6:30 to 7:30 pm, located at 819 West Genesee Street in Skaneateles, (in the bus garage).

The pantry is 100% volunteer run ensuring that all food and monetary donations go directly into the pantry and feeding our clients. Thanks to all 43 new and long-term volunteers!

Due to increases in the cost of food and gas, the pantry has experienced a 200% increase in families from January to June 2022 and a 461% increase in individuals being served weekly in the same time frame! This winter, heating costs are expected to rise by 39%, which we expect will increase our client base further.
