ROME- Rome's Mayor, Jackie Izzo, started her "Walk with the mayor" when she took office. Since its been in place, it has helped the city in many ways.

Mayor Izzo started on South James Street Monday night checking out an area called the "muck" and Gryziec Park, all recommended by residents.

Mayor Izzo said the park looked fine, and in the South James Street area she and her team had to address property owner issues and code violations.

Last year when she did the walk, she found collapsed sewers, and tree and sidewalk issues. Since then, she and the council have made some significant changes."Most people don't realize they are responsible for the sidewalks in front of their house, so we have a sidewalk rebate program," said Izzo. "We upped that by 50% so we're hoping that it's a 75/25 program and a lot of people take advantage of it and repair their sidewalks in front of their homes." She also said they're putting a tree trimming program back in place so trees can continue to be trimmed.


This is the third year the mayor is doing the walk. She'll be out on Monday and Tuesday until the end of August.

She said if an area needs work to call her office at (315)336-6000.
