Report not friendly to Amherst IDA

Check out Dave Robinson's front page story today about the broken promises made by the area's industrial development agencies.

The report the story is based on doesn't look too kindly on any of the suburban IDAs, but especially not  Amherst. 

Erie County's largest town gave out the largest amount of tax breaks over a five-year span (nearly $700,000) but came through on just 11 percent of the jobs the projects promised to create. 

The various projects that received taxpayer subsidies were supposed to create 155 jobs; they created 17.
