The Syracuse common council Tuesday evening re-ignited the debate over what to do with I-81 though the city, because councilor Joe Driscoll says the topic is so important.
"When this meeting was announced, the overhwhelming feedback was 'haven't we had this discussion enough? I've heard about this on and on, to death.' My response would be 'no we haven't.' This is the most important decision to affect this region for 50 to 100 years, so it's worth a couple more discussions."
Driscoll says turnover on the council prompted the meeting.
