Town to begin developing business park site


Tonawanda News — At the end of the meeting, Emminger told attendees that the county has decided not to repave Brighton Road between Niagara Falls Boulevard and Colvin Boulevard this summer, as previously planned. 

The area between Parkhurst and Parker boulevards will still be repaved as part of the Parker-Fries sewer project, however. 

"I have been informed they will not be paving it and are pulling the funding," Emminger said. "Anyone who has driven on Brighton knows it needs attention."

Emminger said he would draft a letter to county officials asking them to reinstate the funding, and he asked the board to authorize the supervisor to send the letter.

Also at Monday's meeting:

• Emminger announced that May 28 will serve as grievance day — residents' chance to appeal their assessments before an impartial board. May 28 is the last day for residents to fill out the paperwork to appeal. 

• Councilman Dan Crangle announced that the small boat harbor at the foot of Sheridan Drive will be open Friday until Sept. 13. Passes for the harbor will also be available Friday and are sold at the Recreation office.
