Green Street Parking Garage Closes Early
Ithaca’s Green Street parking garage will close Wednesday, as the City prepares for an $11.4 million demolition and reconstruction project. The City originally announced that the garage, located across from the Tompkins Country Public Library, would be shut down in early June, but changed its mind last week, due to safety concerns. To address parking needs which may arise from the garage’s closure, the City will aid parking permit holders in relocating to the nearby Cayuga Garage.

Landlord Accused of Spying Appeals
David Church, the Ithaca landlord who was previously sentenced to 5 1/3 years to 16 years in state prison for videotaping female tenants, appealed the collection of evidence and his sentencing Thursday in Broome County Court. Church’s attorney, James Kerrigan, argued before five state appellate court judges that the police had no probable cause to search Church’s home and properties. Church has remained incarcerated in Midstate Correctional Facility in Elmira since June 2005.

Common Council Meets Wednesday
The Ithaca Common Council will hold its monthly meeting this Wednesday to address community and neighborhood issues, including an update from the taxi operations review committee and a resolution for the acceptance of sculpture on the Commons.
