Ways & Means Committee hearing on Oct. 12 about County budget cuts
Onondaga County is looking towards a new source called Cultural Resources Trust to fund the organizations that were eliminated or cut from the budget on Oct. 12.
Yes, the Trust does have funds available. Yes, it could help to aid organizations that have just been cut, including CRC. No, this is not a long term solution.
