Guess when faced with the possibility of the city going under any program will sound good. FAce it. There is absolutely nothing except water and sewage the city has to offer. The city does not even have a named grocery store so that should tell you something. A big hole on Central Avenue is another. Add to that the wages paid to city employees is insane. Yet it goes on looking for the goose that lays the golden egg. It is not there. It was killed a long time ago. Which mayor in recent memory has cut spending? The upgrade of the WWTP cost how much. Same for the water plant. No politician in Dunkirk put the people first. Houses are falling down. Who cares. Building inspector sure doesn't. If something comes to the judge he lets it go. So until people are willing to stand up and state their concerns until they are addressed nothing will happen.

The money spent on that Boardwalk was a waste. You could put up tents in the summer and accomplish as much. I don't see the tax free zone bringing much either. As for the comparison to Canada. I don't even know what to say about that.

we wonder if the title to this story was a typo, maybe what it was meant to be was "Prostrate Check"

All stores need to be open on the 7th. Ice cream cones and pizza will go over big with a crowd of that size. Take advantage of it.

"can't be retail or a restaurant" what exactly does that leave for development and Canada never shuts down, really, really, with brilliant rhetoric like this, we see why this city is in the mess it's in, and the hits just keep on coming
