Niagara Falls will use casino cash funds to buy 19 new patrol cars


Niagara Gazette — “We want to make sure that our equipment is safe and reliable,” Dyster said.

Council Chairman Glenn Choolokian said that by approving the money now the department can begin to work toward replacing the worst cars as soon as possible, instead of waiting for January when the new budget year begins.

“It takes a while to get that stuff in too, so we’re trying to get it done just like we did for DPW,” Choolokian said.

Choolokian said the city should be providing officers with the equipment they need to stay safe in performing their duties.

“You have to have the equipment to do the right things,” Choolokian said. “Especially for the safety of the officer, the safety of the community.”

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.
