Davison Road property declared surplus by county legislature


Niagara Gazette — “That’s certainly something that’s not going to happen,” he said.

In another matter, legislators sent to committee a resolution calling for new bidding on storage space for voting machines and equipment.

The Legislature’s Democratic minority introduced the resolution Tuesday night before lawmakers voted to send the matter to the Administration committee. That committee meets at 6 p.m. Monday in the legislative chambers.

For the last six years, the county has been storing the machines in a 28,000-square-foot former mattress factory at 1961 Transit Road in Newfane, owned by real estate developer David Ulrich. The $650,000, five-year lease would renew automatically every Aug. 1 unless one side or the other gives notice to cancel the lease 120 days in advance.

And Ulrich gave that notice in a letter to County Manager Jeffrey M. Glatz last week.

Before being moved, voting machines and county records were being kept at the Davison Road county property. The move was necessary, county officials said, because the building is dilapidated and leaking.

There was discussion at the committee level of starting the bidding process last summer, but nothing appeared before the Legislature as it was too late in the year to give notice.

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.
