It's time we put the public back in infrastructure! 💪🛠️🚧

Small-scale, neighborhood level improvements, like new garbage cans, can have a huge impact on quality of life.

Thanks to the hard work of Preservation Buffalo Niagara and WestSide Business and TaxPayers Association and a borrowed hammer drill and masonry bits, Grant Street has never looked better. 🚮✨

By sharing more, we can continue to build neighborhoods that work for everyone.

If you're an employer of any size, and even if you think you had a great plan for NYS PSL next year- make sure you check this out! NYS continues to amaze and add-on to the complexity and headache that is NYS Paid Sick Leave.

On December 2nd NYS issued new proposed regulations that shed light on likely final answers to lingering questions on PSL- and it’s not great.

We’ve compiled a summary of what we feel is the most pertinent information.
