What could have become a contentious, divisive issue has ended with a proposed sales tax agreement that appears to please both city and county leaders. 

"The agreement hasn't changed," said Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon.  "We're proposing to extend it another 10 years off of the last year of the existing agreement."  

"It was a very good deal in 2010,  and it's a very good deal in 2018,”  said Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh.
