Four Niagara County Businesses Facing Fines After Tobacco Crackdown

NIAGARA FALLS, NY – Local businesses in Niagara County have been served a total of $3,350.00 over the past six months as the Department of Health cracks down on tobacco compliance.

Completing a total of 117 compliance checks between October 1, 2010 and March 31, 2011, the Niagara County Department of health has been cracking down on the illegal sale of tobacco products to minors in the area.

Locations that have been penalized from the latest crackdown include: the Main Street Gas & Grille on Main Street in Youngstown, the Market Place on Lockport Street in Youngstown, Fastop on Niagara Falls Boulevard, and Wilson Farms Store #352 on Niagara Falls Boulevard.

The facilities that were documented as being in violation will be checked more often by the Department, and face the loss of their tobacco and lottery licenses for repeat violations.

Compliance rates for tobacco sales have exceeded 90% over the past several years.  Information on the success of this program can be obtained by contacting the Environmental Health Division at (716)439-7444.
