Lewiston Road contractor faces fines

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — "We don't discuss personnel matters, but this was not related to his dismissal," Dyster said.

Though Dyster did acknowledge that he asked Skurka to refrain from visiting the job site after the engineer had a confrontation with the contractor.

"It's not his role as the city engineer to do site visits," Dyster said. "You don't want the contractor to feel as though he is being targeted by the city engineer."

Members of the administration should be conducting site visits and monitoring the contractor's work, as that is left to the city inspectors to avoid such conflicts.

"The mayor shouldn't be going down to the site either," Dyster said.

Dyster said the alleged violations are between OSHA and the contractor and should not affect the timeline for the project or the city's ability to be reimbursed for the project by the state.

"There's no reason why this should create any delays on the job," he said.

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.
