ONEONTA — Oneonta has hired the first city manager in its history after voters approved a new charter last November.

Michael H. Long, city administrator of Poughkeepsie, was appointed by the Common Council today.

Long holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Landscape Architecture from the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry at Syracuse.  He also holds a Master's of Arts in Public Administration (MaPA) from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University. 

Mr. Long had been city administrator in Poughkeepsie since 2008.  Before that, he worked for the Cayuga County planning board and for the city of Auburn and served as director of capital projects and grants and as interim city manager.

  • April activities abound at Thanksgiving Home There were many April fool jokes played here at Clara Welch Thanksgiving Home on April 1. Some of us found our door name plates turned upside down or swapped with one from another door and furniture and objects were mysteriously moved around in our rooms. The dining room was completely transformed from its usual formal setting into a hodpodge of mismatched china and … horrors, plastic tablecloths and paper napkins. Each table was decorated with a different theme, Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Easter. Christmas carols played in the background. We suspect that Dee Bouck, of Personal Care and John Santello, Activities Director, were mainly responsible for this mayhem.
