Niagara Falls residents want trash picked up


NIAGARA FALLS, NY – Residents of a Niagara Falls neighborhood alerted us to this story on Saturday. They say city crews still haven't cleaned up trash that was left behind from a community clean-up last week.

After several calls to the city about this issue, the folks we talked to said they weren't getting answers.

We contacted Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster who told us that volunteers are supposed to drop the garbage at designated locations for collection. He's aware some locations may have been missed.

If you know of a location where trash still needs to be picked up you can call the Niagara Falls Public Works Department at 286-4840 and crews from the city or its private contractor, Modern Disposal, will clean it up.

Thursday night, the district held a public hearing to talk about the proposed budget. The district will use a $2 million surplus to help cover the gap, leaving $3 million cuts.

The proposed budget includes cutting twenty teaching jobs and 25 additional staff members.

Only the president of the teacher's union spoke at the hearing. He says the superintendent is doing the best she can with what the state is giving the district.

25 dogs seized from Niagara Falls home


NIAGARA FALLS, NY – The Niagara County SPCA took possession of 25 small breed dogs that were seized from a 10th Street home on Thursday. Officials say conditions in the home were so bad firefighters initially had to wear oxygen masks when entering. They had to air the building out using fans before Niagara County SPCA and Niagara

SPCA Animal Cruelty Investigator Lauren Zaninovich said she had "never been in a home where ammonia levels were so high."

The owner faces the following charges: animal neglect charges, for keeping the animals in unsanitary conditions and failing to provide good and wholesome air for confined animals; two city ordinances, for failure to license and being over the limit of animals permitted to be kept in one dwelling; and a public health code for failing to vaccinate the animals for rabies.
