The City of Oneonta is offering opportunities for interested individuals to sponsor a bench in Downtown Oneonta as part of its Downtown Streetscape Project. The City will accept gifts of $1,000 from individuals to refurbish a particular bench. The sponsor will also receive a 12 inch by 4 inch plaque with an additional donation of $500. The benches have been removed from downtown and will be re-installed as soon as streetscape work is complete. The City is also accepting applications for new benches in the new Miller Memorial Park with a donation of $2,000 for the bench and $500 for a 12 inch by 4 inch plaque. Anyone interested in sponsoring a bench should call 607-431-1355.
