Tax break plan OK'd for former Fairchild Manor Nursing Home


Niagara Gazette — NCIDA Chairman Henry Sloma informed board members on Wednesday about his family’s relationship to the property. Sloma said in 1964 members of his family constructed the building located at 765 Fairchild Place as a long-term care facility, which it owned and operated for many years. Sloma said the facility was sold to another owner years ago and neither him nor any member of his family has anything to do with the property today. He indicated that he has no involvement in current efforts to revive the site. 

“At this point in time, I have absolutely no connection,” Sloma said. 

The agency’s board of directors voted unanimously to accept the tax-break application from 765 Fairchild Place, LLC. The board also agreed to set a public hearing on the project at a date to be determined. 

In other matters, the board:

• Accepted an application for tax assistance from Irr Supply Centers, Inc., a company that is looking to renovate its existing facility at 908 Niagara Falls Blvd. in North Tonawanda. The wholesaler of plumbing, HVAC, refrigeration and electrical products is planning to invest $2.25 million for construction, site work and new equipment. The project is expected to retain 86 jobs and create up to 24 new jobs. Company officials said they are looking to modernize the building, which is adjacent to the Wurlitzer Building, to meet not only their firm’s own needs but retain at least one current tenant and hopefully attract others.

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.
