City drops police OT charge for some groups


Tonawanda News — “During my tenure here, I don’t remember charging a charitable organization for an event,” Kiedrowski said. 

But the veterans like the atmosphere of Niawanda Park for the late-summer event and would like to keep it there. 

“The City of Tonawanda venue is the best place for it,” Salmon said.

The council also approved a The Environmental Service Group Inc. to complete Phase I work on the Niagara River Bank Stabilization Project. 

“We did our background checks, and went over the bids, and are recommending them for the award,” City Engineer Jason LaMonaco said. 

The project will stabilize the 700 feet of the city’s shoreline from the area behind City Hall to the boat launch. 

A quarter-million dollars of the funding for the project will come from the Niagara Greenway Commission, with another $250,000 from a grant obtained by former State Sen. Antoine Thompson.

Most of the construction will be done this fall, with vegetation work, including tree and vine planting, to be completed next year.
