Complaint leads to sewer study


Tonawanda News —

Flynn said John Washington, of the Veteran’s Post, contacted Director of Youths, Park and Recreation Dan Wiles to see if the town would be interested in creating a permanent spot for the tank at Kenney Field alongside the iconic blue Navy plane at the park.

The town approved a resolution to accept the post’s application. 

Flynn said the town needs to make sure the Army will ship the tank at no cost to the town. 

“There might be minimal cost in making an area for it, and maybe installing a fence,” he said. 

The Army tank will add to the plane and Veterans’ Memorial at the park. Crangle said if the application goes as planned, the tank could be shipped this spring. 

“I think it’s pretty exciting,” Supervisor Anthony Caruana said. “It will be a nice addition.”
