Covanta officials, public to discuss expansion plan at 56th Street waste-to-energy facility at Wednesday meeting

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — • Construct a maintenance shop and office building.

• Improve storm water drainage on the grounds.

• Remediate a brownfield on the site.

Covanta representatives have stressed that the changes at the facility will improve efficiency, but the company will not be allowed to burn any more waste than it can under its current DEC permits.

The company is awaiting approval of its application for the renewal of a Title V air permit from the DEC. The permit allows the company to run its incinerators. The renewal application also includes a request for permission to run the new natural gas boiler. 

IF YOU GO • WHAT: Planning board meeting • WHEN: 6 p.m. today • WHERE: City hall, 745 Main St.

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.
