Monroe County drivers will be seeing savings at the gas pump in a few weeks under a plan announced by County Executive Adam Bello. He said yesterday the county would reduce its tax on gasoline by 8 cents starting June 1; that’s when they will tax gas as if it costs $2 per gallon and that coincides with the state’s plan to temporarily lower its gasoline tax from June 1st through the end of the year. Niagara County is talking about doing something similar and capping their 4% tax rate at the cost of 3 dollars a gallon, which would create a 12-cent per gallon savings for consumers there. In other words, counties cannot just drop the gas tax completely; but rather, the state budget notes that they can base it on a lower cost per gallon, say at 2, 3 or 4 dollars. Genesee County Manager Matt Landers said earlier this month that a similar discussion is likely to occur here but it is not in the plans at the moment.


The Batavia City School District, along with the police department, and City Church have joined together to create a new recommended pickup route for the City Church Community Food Distribution program at St. Anthony’s. The City Church currently hosts a bi-monthly food distribution program for community residents at St. Anthony’s Church. Due to the program’s popularity, some traffic concerns have emerged around Jackson Primary, resulting in serious safety issues along with traffic backups during school arrival and dismissal periods. In response, a new route has been established to access the Food Distribution Program pickup line. The new route will be in effect starting with the April 27 distribution date. Those community members who wish to participate in the program must access Liberty Street via South Swan Street, Osterhout Avenue, or Otis Street. All food distribution traffic will be redirected to avoid Liberty Street between South Jackson and Sumner Streets and South Jackson between South Swan and Liberty Streets (the areas directly in front of and adjacent to Jackson Primary). The City Church Community Food Distribution program is scheduled every two weeks for the following dates: April 27, May 11, May 25, June 8, and June 22.
