CNY Regional Authority Fires Executive Director


In response to a critical report released last month by the State Comptroller’s Office over its management, the CNY Regional Market’s board of directors fired Executive Director Amanda Vitale on Monday.

The audit reported the Regional Market Authority’s financial position had deteriorated. It also faulted the board for not properly managing the authority’s financial condition. Cayuga County’s representative on the board, Randy Daratt, was the only member who voted for Vitale to remain on as Executive Director.

The Syracuse-based public authority operates a farmers market and flea market to help vendors sell their products to the public and has programs and services to promote agriculture in Central New York. It is overseen by a 13-member board, consisting of appointees from Onondaga, Oswego, Cayuga, Madison, Cortland, Oneida, and Wayne counties, as well as the commissioner of the state’s Department of Agriculture and Markets. Under state law, board members monitor and oversee fiscal and management operations, and have a fiduciary duty to act in the best interest of the authority, its mission, and the public.
