With debate over tax impact, Lewiston residents to decide fate of civic center

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — Consulting town attorney Michael Dowd, however, said Roberts’ concerns aren’t correct. He said the language is designed to be as nondescript as possible to avoid causing trouble for the town in the future.

“Does the resolution need to specify that the debt service will be paid using the greenway funds? No,” Dowd said. “Bond resolutions are typically generic, because when they’re written, you don’t know what the source of the funds is going to be. They need to be generic about where source of funding is coming from.”

GET OUT AND VOTE • WHAT: Lewiston civic center referendum • WHERE: Lewiston Town Hall, 1375 Ridge Road • WHEN: 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday

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.
