State supports restaurant project

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — "I think that's just a way of (USA Niagara) helping a restaurant without saying they're helping a restaurant," Maziarz said.

Chris Scheopflin, the executive director of USA Niagara, said by investing in the building the agency is not only helping that business owner but any subsequent businesses in that space and neighboring businesses.

"The use is not what we are investing in," Schoepflin said. "We are investing n the physical building, which is not only good for that owner but good for the entire neighborhood."

Schoepflin said investments in facades and the like can spur neighboring businesses to make improvements to their buildings.

"We're trying to, wherever possible, upgrade existing conditions," Schoepflin said. "Especially on Third Street, which desperately needs it."

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.
