State police promotions, SPCA, hazards

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports that the Dryden state police barracks has a new commander. Major Thomas P. Kelly, Jr. the previous commander of Troop C, has been promoted to staff inspector at the State Police Division of Internal Affairs Bureau. Major Louis G. Barbaria Jr., who previously commanded Troop F, replaces him. (Troop C covers Tompkins, Tioga, Otsego, Delaware, Cortland, Chenango, and Broome counties.)

There's another notice for the SPCA's annual Dog Day Walk-A-Thon, which will be July 10th from 10am to 3pm at the SPCA's new building on Hanshaw Road.

The Journal also notes that Tompkins County is hosting a meeting Wednesday, July 7th, to discuss a Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan that includes the County and most towns except Dryden, but the Planning Process Overview document (141KB Word document) indicates that the Town of Dryden "has already completed its hazard mitigation plan". (Newfield and the City of Ithaca have their own plans in progress.)

Addressing an issue just west of Dryden, Trumansburg resident Patricia Bonsall writes about the dangers of the Brown Road - Route 13 intersection and her effort to get a traffic light there.
