City files injunction to delay SPCA service suspension


Niagara Gazette — Dyster said the city has had dealings with the old management and board and the new individuals who were brought in to take over following the release of a scathing report issued by the Erie County SPCA that questioned various aspects of the shelter’s operation. 

He also said the city is willing to work with the SPCA on the terms of a new deal, but is also looking for specific financial information from the agency, including more detailed data on costs for services rendered.  

“We’re going to try to work things out with them,” Dyster said. 

Over in the Town of Lockport, a tentative three-year contract, hammered out Thursday between Supervisor Marc Smith and SPCA officials, would raise the town’s annual fee for dog services to $13,210 this year, from $9,700 last year. The rate would increase by 2 percent a year in 2014 and 2015.

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.
