Tonawanda council rescinds travel approval resolution

(Continued)

Tonawanda News — Slisz said he will present the new resolution at a meeting in the next few weeks. 

The council also approved a traffic study Tuesday to take place on Young Street near Smoke on the Water. 

“Basically what we are going to do is bag that light near there in front and put a barricade there so that you can’t use that lane of traffic,” Pilozzi said. “It will be temporarily and assess how it affects traffic

patterns.”

After the study, the council will decide whether the city will license the area to Smoke on the Water owners for parking purposes, as the restaurant only has a handful of spots and many patrons use other business’ property. 

There has been no recent news of progress on the contract deal with Natale for the Little League Drive development, but Laurence Rubin, the lawyer representing the city, said he hopes to present a contract to the council by the end of the month.

“It may be sooner than the end of the month,” Rubin said. “We have been going back and forth on the details. It is slow but steady progress.”
