Mayor: NYSEG Caused Ithaca Commons Delays

Print More


Mayor Svante Myrick ’09 says the city is not responsible for the repeated delays to the Commons. Instead, he blames the New York State Electric and Gas Corporation.

In an interview with WHCU Radio Tuesday, Myrick said NYSEG is permitted to upgrade their services lines whenever the opportunity arises, as was the case with the Commons redesign.

Yet, according to Myrick, the city was unable to get NYSEG to work more quickly, causing the city to fall behind on the project.
