NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says discussions on a new stadium for the Buffalo Bills are moving forward in a positive direction.
Goodell spoke during the league’s Fall meetings in New York City yesterday and said everyone who is involved in the negotiations are working towards getting a deal done soon.
The team’s ownership group has proposed an over $1-billion stadium be built near Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park which is where the Bills play now. The Bills’ current lease is scheduled to expire in 2023.
Halloween is just a few days away and the State Attorney General’s Office has issued an alert involving deceptive marijuana products. Officials say those items are designed to look like standard snack food and candy but actually contain high levels of cannabis and THC. The products are illegal and unregulated in New York and have been known to cause serious health problems among people who ingest them. Parents are being asked to take a very close look at what their kids get while trick-or-treating to prevent them from getting sick.
This weekend the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office and the Village of Le Roy Police Department will participate in a coordinated effort with the STOP-DWI program to bring awareness to the dangers of impaired driving.
While families spend time trick or treating and hosting parties with loved ones, law enforcement officers and STOP-DWI programs across New York State will participate in special efforts to stop impaired driving, prevent injuries and save lives.
The Genesee County Health Department is trying to sniff out information into a dog bite incident last Saturday. The department says the owner of the dog was walking the animal on a leash along Clinton Ave near James Street in Batavia.
The health department is looking for the dog’s owner to determine if the animal was current on its rabies vaccinations.
Dellinger Avenue in Batavia is closed today for a utility repair.
Dellinger is closed to all traffic between West Main and Washington.
Motorists who regularly use Dellinger are asked to find an alternate route for today.
