Tonawanda News —
Erin Heaney, executive director of the Clean Air Coalition, said she’s spoken to residents who live near the crematory, mostly on Werkley Road, and believe the closure is a step in a right direction, while county officials say holding a hearing will assist in quelling future concerns.
“This proposal appears to be a win-win situation, and the public hearing will help fulfill the New York State standards on the crematory proposal,” said Legislator Lynn Marinelli, D-Town of Tonawanda.
Yet, Heaney added, her organization will continue pressing to ensure it will not affect another residential neighborhood.
“It shows the residents have been working address this,” she said.
The hearing will be held at 2 p.m., Nov. 7 in the Erie County Legislative Chambers on the fourth floor of Old County Hall, 92 Franklin St., Buffalo.
