Commissioner Anthony “Skip” Scirocco
February 29, 1948 – April 6, 2022
Saratoga Springs, NY – The Department of Public Works is deeply saddened to announce today the passing of Commissioner Anthony “Skip” Scirocco following a brief battle with cancer. Skip was surrounded by his loving family including the love of his life, Corinne (Armstrong) Scirocco, sons Anthony and Mark, their spouses, and his grandchildren.
The lifelong Saratogian passionately served the City he loved professionally as the animal control officer, an elected Saratoga County Supervisor (1998-2005), and the Commissioner of Public Works (2008-2022). Skip loved his work and serving the people of Saratoga Springs, and was especially proud of his time in DPW where he oversaw over $70 million of capital investment into the City’s infrastructure during his time in office. Another one of his passions was music, and he loved being Skippy of the local band Skippy and the Pistons.
Information on services will be forthcoming from the family. He was 74 at the time of his passing.
