Zoning designation could impact cleanup efforts at LOOW

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — “If people wanted to see it and we didn’t have it for them, that opens us up to criticism,” he said.

Though other members of the board initially questioned putting a decision off, they eventually came around to see the delay as a positive.

“We’re not under any deadline to do this,” Councilman Ernie Palmer said. “But at the same time, this plan’s been out there for a long time. And we’ve addressed all of the concerns people have had. We asked for participation.”

“Most of the zoning changes have already been approved,” Town Attorney Michael Dowd said. “What we’re talking about here is changes to the actual map. This just lays out what’s where.”

In other board news, two future meeting dates were set. The final audit meeting will be held at 3 p.m. Thursday, while the town’s annual reorganization session will take place at 6 p.m. Monday, Jan. 7. Both meetings will be at Town Hall, 1375 Ridge Road,

Lewiston.

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.
