Defense contractor Lockheed Martin has laid 114 workers at its site in suburban Syracuse and 25 in Owego, as part of the approximately 300 job cuts announced last month.

The 139 employees will be out of a job on August 15.

The reductions are in Lockheed's Mission Systems and Training division. The Salina and Owego plants work primarily in radar and sensor technology. The affected positions are mostly in engineering and program management.

New York State Department of Transportation officials want to find out what the public thinks about the renovation of a much used bridge in Onondaga County. There are a few options to consider when it comes to redoing the bridge on Route 370 over the Seneca River.

Voters in the Town of Salina will be asked to approve a referendum on November 8 to buy and renovate the Burdick Chevrolet site on Old Liverpool Road so the town can move its offices there. Town Supervisor Mark Nicotra says the town could consolidate its offices and highway department on that property for about $6 million  versus spending $8 million to repair its current properties.
