Covanta vote expected on Thursday


Niagara Gazette —

The company also projects only half of the construction jobs will be created in Niagara County with 50 coming from Erie County and 30 coming from "other areas," according to the application.

While the company will get a tax break from the county if the board passes the agreement it will still pay an estimated $17 million in taxes over the course of the PILOT. The agency's goal is to create value for the community while driving business, Sloma said.

"To encourage them to go forward you want to make sure that there is some benefit to the community," Sloma said.

All board members have been provided with the comments of Witryol and other community members and will consider those comments when voting, Sloma said.

"We'll see what happens."

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.
