NT hatches sidewalk plan


Tonawanda News — Council President Rich Andres asked Rowles whether the city would be following a path established by other municipalities, to which Rowles responded, “I think we’ll be the first, this is a very new process.” 

The equipment required to begin the work, including a skid steer, a pump to push up the concrete blocks, a drill and a water tank, will take three months to order and obtain, Rowles added, while training for the process should also be minimal.   

“This will be on-the-job training, Rowles said. “We’re going to take baby steps.”
