Lewiston officials weigh options on senior center

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — Palmer wondered if maybe demolishing the building and designing a new center on its foundation wouldn't be a better option.

"At what point do we cut our losses with that building," he said. "I'd like to see that building knocked down and a new one built there."

He was told by Smith the building would require an asbestos investigation before it could be demolished.

While the board deliberates whether the price tag is affordable, one bit of repair work at the center is on temporary hold due to the weather.

The parking lot, in line to receive new sealer this past weekend, was not touched due to rain Saturday. The inclement weather appears to have pushed back the resealing process at the center until at least Sept. 20, according to Town Clerk Carol Brandon.

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.
