From Council Member Joe Golombek:

It has recently come to my attention that there will be a Covid-19 vaccination clinic at the Delevan-Grider Community Center. While I acknowledge the incredible need for a state-funded “pop-up” clinic such as this in the City of Buffalo, I can’t help but notice the omission of the 14207 area code from the list of other area codes that will have access to preferential appointments before the clinic is opened up to the whole of Erie County.

What concerns me is that our community is shown to meet all of the demographic, economic, and scientific criteria to be marked as a high-priority for a clinic, yet we are being bypassed for reasons that remain totally unclear.

I'm calling on the leadership of New York State to explain why 14207 was not included on the list of priority locations and advocating for the inclusion of a pop-up clinic at the Northwest Buffalo Community Center on Lawn Avenue, which has been a testing site for Covid-19 in the past.

Currently, my office and I are seeking answers from various other political leaders and community groups. We will be speaking with New York State to ask why we were left off the list, reevaluate the situation in 14207, and potentially see if we can be added to the list if possible.

Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts

The Festival is seeking artists, craftspeople, musicians, dancers, puppeteers, food vendors, non profit organizations and volunteers. The Festival was the first festival in WNY to recycle, compost, have solar powered stages and focus on local creativity. Come join us! All applications are here- https://elmwoodartfest.org/2021-applications/

COVID-19 PLANNING
We have decided to begin the preliminary planning for the event. The end of August is a long way off. We don’t know if the State of New York will let us have the event or if we will deem it safe for our artists, staff and over 250 volunteers. Safety is and always has been our top concern. We will not collect booth fees until we are very confident the festival will take place. If the festival has to be cancelled, you will have the option to carry over your application fee and application to 2022 or to get a refund.

If you applied for 2020 and did not request an application fee refund, your application has been rolled over to 2021. You do not need to reapply.

Boys & Girls Clubs of the Northtowns

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of a long time friend and supporter Art Grasha. Art has been associated with the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Northtowns for 68 years as a member, alumni member and past Board member. He enjoyed participating in many events including: penny carnivals, raffles, bingo games, lawn fetes, and his favorite the annual golf tournament. Art was especially proud when the gym was named in his honor and he was inducted into the Hall of Fame.

To our dear friend:
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,

Will there be a call for parking restrictions to be activated for plowing this week?
Good evening Joe, this is Don Kiblin, I'm writing you on behalf of my cousin Kelly. She lives at 31 Albert and has been having problems with her neighbors throwing garbage on her property, having a fire pit on her property and blocking her entrance to her stairs. Kelly is handicapped and can't do a lot around her property. She has called the police, I've put in a complaint to 311 [Mayor's hotline] and nothing gets done. What are her options, she is tired of fighting with her neighbors and she is getting me involved. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Happy birthday joe
I was wondering where would we start to have owners of cats have to sprayed or neuter them and keep them in. Unless on a leash. We have so many problems with cats outside freezing having kittens. I love animals and cats are not being addressed . People are killing them, duck taping them. Its horrible. We need help now for them
I just had to say something about Mr. Golombek. I just spent the better part of two months trying to help my father (a 74 yr old retired vet) with a situation he was having. My frustration in trying to find help was beyond words. I honestly never thought trying to get ahold of a councilman or representative would help in any way. More dismissing or passing to another department. Finally I contacted Mr. Golombak's office. (Approximately 1:30pm)I spoke with a lovely women who came across as concerned and caring. She told me the steps that she would take after our call. Not long after I received a call directly from Mr. Golombak letting me know who he contacted and was personally looking into the matter. That was at 6:00pm. The next morning (9:30am)I received a call from a nice gentleman from the department handling my situation. He was at my house within 15 minutes of our call. He was very informative and caring of the problem. He called me an hour after he left stating that he was taking over the situation. He was very detailed in what was going to go on, above and beyond my expectation. My point I guess is that Mr. Joseph Golombek really came through! I cannot express my gratitude enough. On behalf of my father and my family thank you so very much Mr. Golombek!
hi joecwas wondering if u can find out any news about working again .saw steve macula last week.

Hi Mr. Golombek, do you have time for a call in the next week? I am a tenant on Chandler St. and took the risk of moving my business from Amherst to the city. I am looking for an update on the road completion. We moved last year with 20 full time employees and now employ over 40. We are growing and anticipating an additional 20 employees. I was willing to take a chance in the city and hoping the city recognizes that. Let me your availability and be in touch.
