Mayor delivers annual state of Kenmore speech


Tonawanda News — Attendees were concerned about parking on the streets, but Mang said all spots will remain there.

A question and answer session following the speech focused on those potential lane changes as well as Kenmore Avenue.

“I’m very concerned about Kenmore Avenue,” Mari McNeil, of the Town of Tonawanda, said. “It has really been going downhill.”

Mang agreed, but said the village can’t redo the road, as it is county owned.

“The county has no money,” Mang said.

But Bob Bolt, owner of Mike’s Subs and president of the KMA, said there is a possibility commercial investors could invest on the street.

Bolt was also given the duty of introducing Mang, as well as other elected officials present, at the start of the event. He, along with Vice President Marcia Brogan, detailed a number of KMA events coming up, including Santa’s visit to the village green on Dec. 24 and  the Stop, Sip and Shop on Dec. 5.

The event, which will also be held at the Village Square, will feature a bar and local vendors, and will offer residents a chance to socialize and shop for the holidays.
