Lewiston officials talk 2014 town budget


Niagara Gazette — “All of our department heads submitted good budgets this year,” Reiter said. “The only increases came from the water department and he wants to buy meters and hire an extra person. I don’t think the board’s looking to hire someone. But every year, it’s fine tuned to get under the (state’s property tax cap). We’ll be in good shape.”

In other town news, Reiter was authorized to sign a contract with the Town of Porter to share services of the town’s dog control officer Monday.

Lewiston will provide the service to Porter for $100 per dog found loose during normal work hours and $150 for any dog response made after hours or on weekends. Under the contract, Porter would also be responsible for payment for any use of the town’s official animal shelter by animals brought in from its town.

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.
