New jet boat company seeks IDA tax break


Tonawanda News — Fox’s business partner, Bohnenkamp, is in the river boat business on the Snake River in Idaho and will be supplying the jet boats. The company is also working with Old Fort Niagara on tours and other local businesses to offer package deals. 

Niagara Jet Adventures, LLC has requested a five-year payment-in-lieu-of-taxes agreement as well as sales tax and mortgage recording tax exemptions. Company officials expect the project to create 11 full-time positions with a total payroll by year three of operation of $420,000.
