Binghamton Officials To Meet With Apartment Residents
Residents of a large apartment complex on Binghamton's North Side will be able to talk with city officials about the future of the property during a public meeting.
Mayor Richard David says the city will host the session at the Centenary-Chenango Street United Methodist Church Thursday at 6 p.m.
According to the mayor, he'll be joined by police chief Joseph Zikuski and other city officials to discuss security issues at the complex.
David says the city is considering the possibility of locking down certain apartments. The complex is being scrutinized following the death of a man who was shot on July 4.
The mayor says the city intends to hold the apartment managers accountable. He says the review of police calls to the property in recent years is continuing.
Speaking on WNBF Radio's Binghamton Now program, David said the city has no intention of trying to close down the entire Town and Country complex under the "Lockdown Law."
