Niagara County IDA ranks second in total exemptions, outside New York City


Tonawanda News — The Authorities Budget Office did not offer any comment on the appropriateness of the level of exemptions offered by the various IDAs. 

Kidera said it is up to residents living in the individual communities served by the IDAs listed in the report to determine if they are getting a satisfactory return on the incentives being offered by those agencies. 

“Hopefully, it gives people a broader sense of what’s going on and lets people draw their own conclusions and encourages dialogue at the local level,” Kidera said.
