Here’s a sign of spring: The Dwyer Stadium Box Office will open a week from tomorrow.
The Muckdog’s opening day is Friday, June 17th.
The team has also announced it will host their summer Job Fair on May 14th. Applicants must be at least 16 years old.
The Batavia City Council this Monday will be asked to approve a construction bid to replace a sewer line on parts of North and Ross Streets.
The low bid of $543,000 was submitted by Tom Greenauer Development of Elma, in Erie County.
The bid was the lowest of four received.
The work was originally scheduled for next year, but raw sewage seeping into some homes along North Street prompted city officials to move ahead with the project this year.
One man is dead and three women and nine-year-old boy are hospitalized when carbon monoxide seeped into a home on Nisa Lane in Gates. A 20-year-old woman who lives there awoke to find other residents unresponsive. The victims, believed to be related, are all listed in "very serious condition." A gas powered generator in the garage is believed to be responsible. If it had not run out of fuel, police said, all five occupants would likely be dead.
The governor will be pushing his agenda harder than ever in the coming weeks.
Andrew Cuomo announced his cabinet members will be traveling across the state to gather support for his property tax cap, ethics reform and marriage equality.
Regarding one of those issues, the governor thinks there are finally enough votes for a same sex marriage bill to pass.
Same-sex marriage bills have been passed in the Democrat controlled State Assembly in the past, but they continually fall short in the Senate.
Advocates hope to have a measure passed before the current Legislative session is over.
