Today in City Hall

By Jill Terreri

Good morning,

The Common Council will meet at 2 p.m. today in Council Chambers. The agenda is posted below. 

A public hearing will be held on amending a land disposition agreement between the Buffalo Urban Renewal Agency and Uniland Development, which will allow a new Catholic Health headquarters at the foot of Rt. 33 to move forward. The Council is expected to approve the changed agreement following the hearing. 

North Council Member Joseph Golombek is sponsoring a resolution urging the NHL to resolve the lockout. He admitted in a premeeting caucus yesterday that it probably won't have an impact but said he wants to put pressure on the organization. 

The Council is also expected to approve a budget from Buffalo Civic Auto Ramps. 

At 2:30 p.m., Mayor Byron W. Brown will unveil $1.1 million in new snow equipment at the Broadway garage, along with Public Works Commissioner Steven J. Stepniak and Snow Removal and Street Cleaning Director Henry Jackson. 

Also today, the Buffalo Urban Development Corporation will meet at 12:30 p.m. in the offices of the ECIDA, on Genesee Street. On their agenda is a proposal to award a $290,000 contract to Wedel engineers to investigate whether putting a golf course on a South Buffalo landfill is feasible. The funding will come from the state Department of State South Buffalo Brownfield Opportunity Area program grant.
