Tonawanda News — Consultations with the city’s legal department revealed there’s little that can be done, though Kiedrowski said most residents will realize the misleading nature of the wording.
“Generally ... most people, they’ll throw them in the garbage,” he said, while recalling a similar mailer several years ago that used the North Tonawanda seal as part of its advertisement.
Kiedrowski said companies such as American Water Resources often procure names and addresses through board of elections website or by paying other private entities for local demographics.
“People may think, ‘what’s North Tonawanda doing now?’” he said. “I think most people will probably figure it out, but I still wanted to get the word out.”Contact reporter Michael Regan at 693-1000, ext. 4115.
