Only in NT: City of North Tonawanda Website could use a facelift

June 18, 2017 Sweeney Payne 0

A visit to the City of North Tonawanda’s website,  www.northtonawanda.org reveals there are some things on it that shouldn’t be on it and some that should be on the website that aren’t.

Perhaps City Clerk-Treasurer Daniel Quinn should check out everything that is currently posted on the website and see if what I am saying isn’t true.

This screen shot from the NT website presents info that is outdated.

There are very stale things on it, like the “Ponies on Parade” page. Visitors to the site are given to believe the project is still ongoing, although it never got finished and died away after about five years.

Shocking Cuomo press release reveals real Rationale for Robert Moses Parkway Upgrade

June 18, 2017 James Hufnagel 0
It couldn’t have been made any clearer had it been posted on billboards, shouted from rooftops or written in skywriting.   If there was ever the shadow of a doubt in your mind that the south Robert Moses Parkway reconstruction was intended to do anything other than convey tourists past the city’s business district and directly into Niagara Falls State Park, we recently came across stark evidence, consisting of a press release from Governor Cuomo’s office which was largely overlooked when it was issued a little over a year ago, that spells out the true purpose of the so-called “Riverway” project.   To summarize, the vaunted $http://southbuffalonews.com9 million “Riverway”, promoted by State Parks and local politicians like Mayor Paul Dyster as “removal”, supposedly to reclaim waterfront, until it became obvious to all that nothing was being removed (at which point they started to call it “reconfiguration”), converted a small section of the parkway from four to two lanes, lowering the speed limit on that brief stretch as it approaches a newly-installed European-style traffic circle. An overpass and large berm were removed, so now drivers can enjoy a brief glance at the river as they zip along. Huge signs from the Grand Island bridge to the city limits practically beg drivers to avoid the city and drive directly into the state park.   All this, of course, after local citizens turned up in large numbers at scoping hearings to demand removal (see the April http://southbuffalonews.com, 20http://southbuffalonews.com4 issue of the Reporter,
