JAMESTOWN – Members of the Jamestown City Council are expected to vote on an agreement involving the collection and disposal of syringes during its Voting Session Monday evening at City Hall.







According to the meeting agenda released Thursday, Jamestown Mayor Eddie Sundquist and HOPE Chautauqua Coalition have reached an agreement for the municipality to acquire 10 sharps containers for syringe disposal. The agreement says that medical waste disposal costs will be covered by a New York State Department of Health grant for one year.

In addition, the resolution says that the sharps containers are free to obtain through an application process that would be completed by the Coalition.







City Officials discussed a recent uptick in the littering of used syringes in public spaces during a Work Session last month. Sundquist, however, explained that he discovered something different.

“People were actually taking any syringes that they had and were putting them in the boxes. So we stopped seeing them kind of thrown in the ramp and (it) actually changed the behavior,” said Sundquist.













The Council will also be honoring Jamestown Police Officer Mark Conklin with a resolution thanking him for his heroic effort in rescuing a City family from a house fire in the early morning hours of July 19.

An exclusive interview with Officer Conklin can be found here.
