Veterans memorial pitched for Town of Wheatfield

Niagara Gazette — Plans for a veterans memorial were presented to the Wheatfield Town Board during its meeting Monday night.

During a public hearing, Tim Rider presented the board with plans to construct a veterans memorial to honor the men and women from Wheatfield that have severed in the military.

Plans to erect one of two memorials, either at Fairmount Park or by town hall, were presented. 

The board said they will gather feedback and will look to discuss the matter aging during its March 10 meeting.

A second hearing to discuss the rezoning of the Meadows at Wheatfield was canceled because the planning board has decided not to follow through with the proposal.

The board did approve several motions during the regular meeting, one for the highway department to purchase two 2015 Chevy Silverados to serve as general utility trucks.

Art Kroening, representing the highway department, says the town is still low on salt for roads. However, he added that the town is prepared for the next few storms and is trying to import more salt from Canada.

The board also passed three motions by Tim Zuber of the town planning board:

• Authorized Wendel to provide support services for GPS implementation this year.

The proposal includes a $2,600 payment for WMA site hosting and a maintenance and time expense budget not to exceed $7,400 will be established for the support services tasks.

• Authorized Wendel to provide stormwater management program assistance. The estimated time and expense fee for this matter is $5,000.

• Scheduled a public hearing to discuss the rezoning of the Wheatfield Lakes patio homes. While the area would remain a PUD zone, the plan is to modify the parcel zones. The hearing will be held at 7 p.m. on March 10.

The next regular board meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 24 and will be preceded by an public information meeting at 7 p.m. regarding a proposed site plan modification to the Quasar facility.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
