Janese counters claim


Niagara Gazette — "Our by-laws and the New York Public Authorities Law require that three of the five board members of the Niagara Falls Water Board reside in the city of Niagara Falls," Janese wrote. 

Janese acknowledged that he and his wife recently purchased a home in Lewiston, but said it does not mean that he relinquished his residence in the Falls. 

"Ms. Kimble should know that the courts of this state have repeatedly held that a person can have more than one residence so long as he or she declares one to be his or her primary residence," Janese wrote. 

Meanwhile, city lawmakers weighed in on the matter on Wednesday. During a council budget meeting, all five members voted to approve a resolution "demanding" Janese immediately resign from his position on the water board. 

Earlier this week, Ottaviano indicated that he has been in contact with both Janese and Kimble and is in the process of gathering various documents as part of a review of Kimble's residency claim. 

Late Wednesday, Kimble declined comment on the content of Janese's letter, saying she'd prefer to wait for the water board's the internal process to play out.

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.
