Legislature backs calls for new mission for 107th Air Wing
Wed, Mar 21st 2012 07:45 am
Niagara County lawmakers unanimously backed a proposal to assign a new mission to the 107th Air Wing at the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station after a freshman legislator whose district includes the vulnerable air base asked colleagues to get behind the proposal as "the best option currently on the table."

Legislator Kathryn Lance, R-Wheatfield, introduced a resolution in the County Legislature Tuesday that made the deliberative body one of the first to formally back a plan, cobbled together by a federally chartered panel of governors, that would shift the 107th Airlift Wing—which currently flies C-130 transport aircraft—to a reconnaissance role.

Wheatfield going for large tote recycling
Thu, Dec 1st 2011 07:00 am
By spring, Wheatfield residents should be wheeling out 64-gallon totes filled with recyclables to the end of their driveways every other week.

The Town Board on Monday awarded a three-year contract for refuse and recycling to Modern Disposal. Supervisor Bob Cliffe said Modern offered the town the best deal and the most return on recycling over the other two bidders, Waste Management and Allied Recycling.

Modern offered a guaranteed minimum recycling rebate to the town of $30,000 per year, which would reduce the town's total three-year cost for refuse removal to $2,466,548 or less. The contract includes the possibility of two two-year extensions.

Final contract details have yet to be negotiated with Modern and a bid awarded for the totes.
