Recreation center project gaining support

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — "The seniors need their own facility fixed," she said. "No one will dispute the need this facility meets. No one will dispute that this facility is necessary. But scale it down."

While the project won't be scaled down size-wise, Supervisor Steve Reiter said the portion containing the senior citizens center, complete with meeting rooms, a kitchen and computer work stations, is no longer being considered for the civic center project.

Reiter said the current center, located on Lower River Road, will receive its needed renovations, which would take more than $1 million off the original price tag for the new project.

"So in one swipe of the pen, we scaled down the project and we're giving the seniors what they want, keeping them in the same facility," Reiter said. "But I think as they come to the civic center and see what's there, they may change their minds."

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.
