Seventh part-time 'conflict' attorney OK'd by legislature


Niagara Gazette — Funding for the basketball court comes from Coca Cola, whose online “best” American parks poll last year netted a $50,000 second prize for Krull Park.

• Approved county environmental coordinator Dawn Timm’s appointment as interim administrator of the refuse disposal district, for a salary bump of $773 per month, through the end of this year. 

Timm is holding down two posts after the January resignation of longtime refuse district director Richard Pope.

• Approved an allocation of 150 kilowatts of low-cost power to 525 Wheat LLC, an expanding laser engraving operation in North Tonawanda. The allocation is from Empower Niagara, a county-run program that re-grants shares of the county’s nine-megawatt allocation from New York Power Authority for economic development purposes.

The way the program works, the county sells its power and uses the money to help selected businesses pay their electric bills, up to the value of their kilowatt grants, for up to three years. The 150 kW grant to 525 Wheat LLC is worth an estimated $46,000 this year.

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.
