Whitesboro residents are invited to a special meeting next week to discuss ongoing issues with flooding in the village.

The special meeting of the Sauquoit Creek Basin Intermunicipal Commission will take place on Wednesday at 7:00 at the Whitesboro Fire House on Oriskany Boulevard.

Senator Joseph Griffo says the state is becoming more proactive in finding ways to avert severe flooding.

Griffo says the meeting will give home and business owners the chance to give direct input on providing lasting preventative measures.
