Niagara Gazette —

“We’ve got to look at each one individually,” Choolokian said.

In other council matters;

• Measures to approve appropriation agreements with the Niagara Arts and Cultural Center and the Niagara Falls Block Club Council were defeated. Choolokian, Councilman Sam Fruscione and Councilman Robert Anderson Jr. voted no to the measures while Councilwoman Kristen Grandinetti and Councilman Charles Walker voted yes.

• The appropriation agreement for the Niagara Falls Beautification Commission was tabled.

• The council unanimously voted down a change order to a consulting contract on the John B. Daly Boulevard extension project that would have paid environmental consultants Stanec Consulting Group, Inc. an additional $100,000.

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.
