Niagara Gazette — Choolokian said he has been pushing for the city to sell vacant lots for more than a year.

Now that the program has started the city and the council need to figure out the best way to let residents know the lots are available, he added.

“We’ve got to figure out how we can make people more aware that they can buy these lots,” Choolokian said.

Standing behind his Niagara Avenue home, Robert points to some low spots he will have to fill and the foundation of a demolished garage he will have to remove.

Robert laughed as he realized he better start pricing out riding mowers for his new yard.

“I’ve got a $20 push mower from a garage sale,” Robert said. “I’m definitely not going to push mow this one.”

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.
